Paris is infinitely fashionable at the best of times, but it doesn’t get much better than Paris Fashion Week. Fashion royalty will start to descend on the city in just a few days, fresh from the shows in Milan, and will be ready to show Paris what they’re made of.
Paris Fashion Week has already started and will run from March 2nd to the 10th, and all the top designers will be clamouring to be the big hit of the week. Their ready-to-wear Autumn/Winter 2010/11 collections are always eagerly awaited by the media, by their fellow designers and indeed by “fashionistas” wanting to get the inside scoop on the next hot trends, and shows are always bursting with celebrities and the fashion elite filling venues to the rafters.
The week starts slowly with just four shows on Tuesday March 2nd , but it quickly builds momentum with the top fashion houses showcasing their latest designs throughout the remainder of the week. It ends on a high note with Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Miu Miu all having their shows on the final day (March 10th), and with Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Valentino, Vivienne Westwood and Thierry Mugler being just a few of the other designers offering their collections to the awaiting public it really will be a treat for fashion fans everywhere.
Just a few of the top-class venues to be used for the shows include the Palais de Tokyo, Hotel Westin, Halle Freyssinet and the Grande Palais, so guests really will be treated to the height of luxury. It’s a chance for everyone to get a preview of the up and coming trends, and could even give new designers the opportunity to get their designs recognised by the fashion world.
If you’re lucky enough to have a ticket to one of these shows, why not make the most of it? Rent apartments in Paris for a truly relaxing visit to the city, and while you’re there take in everything else that the city has to offer. But, you don’t even have to have tickets to the shows to enjoy Paris Fashion Week – simply use it as an excuse to take a trip to the city to really see it at its best.
Paris will be buzzing over the next few days, and with the shows’ after parties bound to cause a stir you’ll never be short of something to see or do. So, make this your opportunity to indulge in every excess you can find in this fabulous city and you won’t be disappointed.
