Extraordinary Edward Enninful

Wherever I go, I do my best to live by this question: when was the last time you did something for the first time?

The Paris collections are in full swing and in between shows, I added another "first". The very kind folks of i-D Magazine, Terry & Tricia Jones, invited me to have lunch with Edward Enninful. I've always wanted to meet him as I'm a total fan of his work — for i-D, for American & Italian Vogue, for Lanvin, etc. He's one of the most talented and creative tastemakers and I have nothing but sheer admiration and respect for the man behind the inspirational images I've seen in fashion over the years.

Here's the view from my seat at the Viktor & Rolf spring/summer 2011 fashion show here in Paris.

I'm very curious how some of these looks translate on a retail level. I'm thinking shirt dressing…

You guys should have seen the showstopper gown at the end of the show. It was Lady Gaga's wedding dress right there!

I thoroughly enjoyed Rodolfo Paglialunga's spring/summer 2011 presentation for Vionnet.

The thing I like best about presentations is that you are able to see the details of the clothes up close unlike in a runway where you are able to see a look, the total look, in a matter of seconds. I *LOVE* the new Vionnet collection. I thought it was feminine and delightful. I also like that touch of gold in their accessories.

Vionnet collaborated with famed shoemaker Giuseppe Zanotti for this collection.
