Shāh: (Persian: شاه, [ʃɒː], English: /ˈʃɑː/) is the title of the ruler of certain Southwest Asian and Central Asian countries, especially Persia (modern Iran), and derives from the Persian word SHAH, meaning "KING".
As much as I LOVE the fashion shows in Paris, some of the best fashion can be seen at the after parties. Plus it gives a girl a reason to dress up and drink champagne! With so many parties going on every night, you must choose wisely which ones to attend and then make sure you arrive promptly around the times it begins or you will be stuck in an aggressive crowd pushing to get in and yes, they all have invitations too. But once in, you get to mingle with the reputable fashion designers and editors, boogie down next to stunning models like Karlie Kloss, Chanel Iman and Lara Stone and share a cocktail with your favorite celebrity. It is quite a surreal experience. Other than the parties, two of my favorite clubs in Paris are Le Baron and Raspoutine. I would have liked to take more pictures, but here are a couple of my unforgettable moments. Bisous NYS
