Girl of the Week: North West
A first-time fashion week experience is a memorable occasion, for most. That's not to mention being sat front row at one of the hottest tickets in town during PFW, admiring some of the best models in the business walk for Balenciaga SS15 army of beautiful perforated pieces. But then again, little Miss North West isn't 'most' people.
Famous children on the front row is nothing new, the Beckham clan are regularly spotted supporting their mother at the Victoria Beckham shows in New York, however North's appearance this week is different. There are no family ties here linking the baby to Balenciaga and/or its creative director Alexander Wang, auntie Kendall Jenner wasn't even working the runway – and to some her presence threatened to overshadow, or somehow upstage, the show. Let's just remind ourselves here, North is one. But whatever your opinion and side of the fence you fall, she's has caused a scene, and kudos to Kimye if that was in fact their aim, sitting proudly with her wearing a Yeezus T-shirt. Go Wests.

It's been a whirlwind year lead-up to North's fashion week debut, having been born to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian a little over 12 months ago. She's been spotted co-starring with her parents in American Vogue, modelled solo for Carine Roitfeld's CR Fashion Book in Chanel, and travelled the world. A quick succession of magical moments that would mark some people's career dream come true, unfortunately she won't remember a second of it.

However for all the novel shoots and attention yielding moves from her parents (something that is reportedly down to Kim rather than Kanye, who prefers his privacy), there was a change of pace for brand Kardashian-West this week. It occurred the day they appeared as a solid team-of-three in Paris, notably sitting on said Balenciaga front row, with Mummy and Daddy also attending other exciting events together, building on their profile as a professional fashion power couple, cultivating a future of fame for their daughter, whether she wants it or not.
However for now, one thing now is certain... The North West star is rising.
