Firstly, I am not a photographer and will never claim to be. I was flicking through my phone over the weekend and came across some great photos I taken while in Paris on my monthly tour of Fashion month’ and thought I would share with you of my time in Paris and over Paris Fashion Week:
While in Paris I stayed at the The Westin Paris – Vendôme. The hotel is located in France’s historical Right Bank district. The Jardin des Tuileries is across the street. Three blocks from the hotel is the Louvre and Notre Dame Cathedral is less than two kilometres away. I woke up each morning with this incredible view overlooking Paris and of course the Eiffel Tower. Heaven right?
3:46pm – Vivienne Westwood Gold Label pre show run through happened at Le Centorial in Paris. Models included 6ft 3 Gwendoline Christie and Men dressed as Women part of Vivienne’s latest UNISEX runway.
8:35pm on Saturday evening after the shows had finished for the day there seemed nothing better to do but to head down to the Veuve Clicquot bar in the Courtyard of the Westin Hotel. Staff were on point, champagne flowing while answering email after email… pros and cons!
Sunday 8th March and I’m ready to hit the city for another day of shows – I had my Coach back-pocket essential with the latest Americana print by Stuart Vevers’ remixed bandana motifs and prairie florals and sunglasses ready to see Kenzo, Celine and John Galliano.
Walking between shows as it was an incredibly sunny day, I couldn’t help go via the Point des Arts bridge in Paris. Did you know, couple writes their names on a padlock and locks it onto one of the bridges? They then throw the key into the Seine River as a symbol of their undying love. Cute?
Rue Saint Honore was a stone throw away from my hotel in Paris. It’s like home from home as its incredibly similar to Bond Street in London with historic labels like Hermes, Bottega, Jimmy Choo and worth paying a visit to Colette.
On my way to Celine, I went by the The Pont Alexandre III bridge that spans the Seine in Paris. It connects the Champs-Élysées quarter with those of the Invalides and Eiffel Tower. The bridge is widely regarded as the most ornate, extravagant bridge in the city – worth a visit!
