Paris Fashion Week runs between the 23rd of September and the 1st of October and sees the French capital plays host to the most glamorous names in the world of fashion. Designers flocking to Paris for the event include world-famous names like Vivienne Westwood, Chanel and Dior, as the major fashion houses roll out their latest ready to wear collections. Witness the beauty and the spectacle by staying at the Hotel Herse d'Or during the week, and take home a haute couture item or two of your own from the collections on display.
Paris Fashion Week has been running since 1973 and the major events take place in the stunning surroundings of the Tuileries Gardens, which are situated right next to the Louvre Museum and the Place de la Concorde. Families are well catered for as well. While you are dazzled by the garments on show, children can enjoy the rides and boating lake in the gardens, and you can also combine a spell beside the catwalk with a day of cultural exploration by visiting the Louvre or the Pompidou Centre. The September event is Paris' major fashion week, but lovers of men's fashion and haute couture can attend specialist fashion weeks at other times of year as well.
There are few cities in the world as glamorous and spellbinding for fashion lovers. So allow yourself to be amazed by the creations of the world's greatest designers with a trip during Paris Fashion Week.
