It is Wednesday 4th. March, mid afternoon in Paris. In a salon on the first floor of 51 Avenue D’Iena a group of models gather. They are about to commence rehearsal for Sharon Wauchob’s AW 2015 collection show. There is such expectation in the air that even this simple gathering brings forward waves of camera crews and photographers to almost drown the coltish girls in a sea of cables, lenses and electronic flashes.
”…they are from all parts and none, constantly on the move – a migrant troop of professionals on tour around the fashion capitals…”
Within the hour media guests and buyers race in and race out, taking in all 11 minutes of a show that is mesmeric in its use of fabric, cutting and creativity. Models aren’t stupid – some will go on to be economists, writers, politicians – and during those breath taking minutes the girls find their feet and glide.
