usher at men's fashion week in paris

finally some photos from men's fashion week! and what better way to kick start it than with these ones i managed to take of usher! i was really excited to snap these, as i had seen him at a couple different shows but could never get a decent pic due to lighting/him being whisked away by security. these were taken after the damir doma show, where he was kind enough to stop for pics :) / enfin des photos de la fashion week hommes! et quel meilleur moyen de commencer que celles que j'ai pu prendre de usher! j'en suis super contente, l'ayant vu plusieurs fois à différents show sans avoir pu faire de photo correcte à cause de la lumière ou de la sécurité l'emmenant vite fait à la sortie. celles-ci ont été prises après le défilé de damir doma, où il a eu la gentillesse de s'arrêter pour les photos :)

^ awesome double zip detail
