DIARY OF A PARISIAN INTERN

Diary of an Intern Paris
December 16, 2020 0 Comments

The great thing about Paris is that you can walk down the street looking really fancy and nobody will care.

An accurate observation made by my roommate last week. There is possibly no greater example of this than Diane Pernet, the fashion festival founder/ writer/ blogger I’ve been working with for the past 2 months. Diane runs the fashion film festival ASVOFF (A Shaded View on Fashion Film) celebrates beauty, style and fashion without the vapidity often associated with those genres.

With film increasingly becoming the medium of choice for fashion designers to show situs judi online collections, ASVOFF has its finger on the pulse.

One of the highlights of the weekend was the screening of satirical 60’s film Qui êtes-vous, Polly Maggoo?, and a Q&A with the film’s director William Klein (who was also a renowned fashion photographer in his heyday). I had watched Polly Maggoo last year on my laptop with the film in one window and a copy of the English subtitles in another, so it was great to see it with an elderly director answered questions from the audience.

Unfortunately my mediocre French left me a but lost for this portion of the evening, but just being in his presence was something special.

The after-party brought us to one of Paris’s most exclusive nightclubs, silencio. The underground haunt owned by avant-garde filmmaker David Lynch certainly embodies some aspects of his trademark surrealism.

Photos are forbidden but here’s a sneaky one I took on my phone of my friend Miriam. If you find yourself in Paris it’s definitely worth a look, but first you’ll have to find someone with a membership card to try and blag you in.
