LIFE: My Paris Fashion Week 2016 Photo Diary

I adore Paris and I am so lucky to be able to travel there for work. And literally, anything is possible in life. If you haven’t traveled to a new continent and want to, just know – it can be done and be done affordably. I leave that for another post, but just for some inspirationally reference – I’m from the hood and literally shared a bed with my sister. If I can make it out – so can you!

Okay, now on to some fun photos…


Since I started traveling a lot for work in the past 2 years, I’ve become a pro. Vegan snacks, so I don’t die and my usual British Airways Flight…


Don’t mind if I do.

Invites Galore. The difference between New York Fashion Week and Paris, is that you need your physical invite to get into the shows. It’s inconvenient at times, but kind of a nice tradition.


Later on, I DJ’ed for my NYC friends, Up & Down, who had a pop up shop/club at L’Arc. Virgil Abloh and Jus Ske also played some jams.


Naleye was in the cut.
