My First: Katya Bybina At Fashion Week Fall/winter 2017

Katya Bybina represented Russia at the Elite Model Look World Final 2016 in Lisbon, Portugal just a few months ago. This season, she walked in her first fashion shows at the Fall Winter shows in Paris - we caught up with her on what it was like.

You walked for Rick Owens, Vivienne Westwood and Loewe – what was it like?

It was such a pleasure for me to take part in both these shows - everything was fantastic. The Loewe show was a personal highlight for me. I've already done some shows in Russia, but Paris is absolutely another level!

Did you see any other Elite Model Look 2016 finalists during fashion week?

I saw Jill from Germany every day at the castings. I also bumped into Etienne from France in the street. It was so cool to see each other again!

Was fashion week how you imagined it to be?

I realised it’s not so easy - there are so many beautiful girls out there, but it was certainly a good start. I’m going back to Paris in few days, so I'm very happy about that!

Where did you stay during fashion week?

I was living at the model apartment. It was a really nice, large French flat near the Arc de Triomphe. I was living with cool girls from Italy, Estonia, Ukraine and loads of others. We became very close, I already miss them so much. It was my first time in Paris. I'm in love with this city! I really like the streets, the architecture and little outside cafes. I hope to explore more next time.
