If you have been wondering why my last post was since Jan 9....remembered I mentioned that I was going to be in Paris, France for business trip. I havent forgotten any of you here. Please do give me some time to reply your comments in the next couple of days. I will be checking your newest post in no time. Overall, the trip was worth it tho exhausting. I was there to showcase my F/W 12 collection at the Salon de la Lingerie fair. And many of those who loved my work came from all parts of Europe. Soon, I will see my designs in Greece, Italy and Scandinavia. Excited and proud. These pictures were taken with my panasonic lumix. Pardon the poor clarity if you notice. Could not bring along my DSLR due to weight. Hopefully these photos are good enough for you guys. Did not have the luxury of time to enjoy the sights as it was for business this time. Fortunately, I had some time off at Printemps to do some personal shopping too :) Enjoy them!
Above: Lightings were terrible on this shot as it was taken in the hotel room.

Above: Hotel Lobby ALL IN PINK. Too much for me though. Had no time to take photos so resorted to camwhoring on this baroque framed mirror.
Above: Bought another color just like the one my bestie Juan had :) It was on 30% sale. WHY NOT? I could not say no to another piece.
Kate Moss found on wall in a high street boutique that carried brands like ACNE, MARGIELA & CDG...etc.

Above : The place where Marc Jacob spend most of his time brainstorming his ideas for Louis Vuittion designs and runway shows. The LV atelier right before my eyes.You can find the documentary in Youtube too. The office is along Pont Neuf street. And of course he smoked alot, sleep here alot and had a team to sew all the catwalk pret-a-porter pieces. Anna Wintour will always come by to hear him share about his inspirations behind each collection or a handbag. JUST AMAZING.
Seems like every big city has a ferris wheel.
Pizza with Mozarella and ham :P Eat all day long.
Spicy Olive oil with baguette is just perfect combination.
It looked like chinese TOFU. But it was ice cream coated with caramel and peanut butter. SUPER GOOD.
