Jessica Stam’s “Breath-Taking” Time at Paris Couture Fashion Week

Armani Prive, Couture Fall 2012

The model jetted to the French capital to walk in the high end shows earlier this month and also found the time to sample some of the city’s shops. Jessica’s favorite part of her experience was indulging her passion for fashion by picking up “exciting” new additions for her wardrobe.

“I love clothes and shoes and get excited whenever I attain new pieces for my wardrobe,” Jessica gushed. “In particular getting to visit Mr. Azzedine Alaïa and shop in his store.”

The model also enjoyed another part of her week in Paris. She raved about the couture shows she was lucky enough to witness. Having worked as a catwalk model for couture clothing before, Jessica has an insider appreciation for the effort designers put in to something so spectacular.

“Also, I loved having the opportunity to view the Giambattista Valli couture and Valentino couture shows.” Jessica told “They were each breath-taking and I know from walking in shows how much effort goes into designing and producing a couture outfit and a fashion show.”
