PARIS BEAUTIES AT THEIR BEST
Bonjour Parismarais readers,
In the past few weeks, more world-class fashion and design professionals than ever before flocked to Paris and le Marais. They arrived to see all the latest and greatest hot new trends at the 20 big trade shows that took place in the city, all promoted under one brand name: Paris Capitale de la Creation. This event includes the world’s number one design show, Maison et Objet, which took place in the gigantic exhibition hall of Villepinte. http://www.pariscapitaledelacreation.com/en/salons.php
We had the great pleasure to enjoy the final party where Paris city representatives presented awards for creativity in various fields. Marianne Ström, the famous Swedish photographer who has published many books about architecture, took these wonderful pictures of the party at Paris City Hall—it was certainly la vie en rose in Paris. Discover her work on http://www.artspublics.net/
The streets of le Marais were packed with models, designers, buyers and fashion victims from across the planet. Le Marais became more international than ever, with all the hotels fully booked, and restaurants and clubs buzzing with excitement.
There is no need to say it again, but we will anyway – there is really no low season in Paris, it’s always a very busy city! The only off-season and inexpensive time is from July 15 to August 25, so if you are on a budget, plan your holiday for August and you’ll enjoy discounts of 30% to 40% off most hotels and apartment rentals.
