The 10 places in Paris to visit during Fashion Week 2018
This week, Paris will experience the rhythm of the most awaited event in the world of fashion, the Paris Fashion Week. Whether you are a "fashion addict" or not, My Webspot has selected for you the 10 places not to be missed. Enough to discover or rediscover the City of Light during the event.
Paris Fashion Week on the cultural side
Paris is one of the cities that have the most to offer to your thirst for culture. Among the hundreds of galleries, museums and cultural sites in the French capital, two will be particularly popular with fashion lovers.
The Yves Saint Laurent Museum
Are you passionate about haute couture? Don't miss visiting the Yves Saint Laurent Museum in Paris, which opened just 9 months ago!
You can see the couturier's work on display in the historic site of his former fashion house. In his inaugural journey, some fifty haute couture models are to be discovered.
Yves Saint Laurent Museum, 5 Avenue Marceau - 75116 Paris
The Museum of Decorative Arts
Located between the Tuileries gardens and the Place du Palais Royal, this museum offers one of the most important collections in the world on the history of fashion. Don't miss the exhibition Margiela, les années Hermès, which highlights the surprising collaboration between the house of Hermès and this Belgian designer.
A little something extra: its Loulou restaurant is the VIP HQ for the fashion shows (from the Kardashian family, through the Victoria Secrets Top models to the most fashionable designers). In addition to having a menu to be damned and a heated terrace in the heart of the Jardin des Tuileries.
Musée des Arts Décoratifs, 107 Rue de Rivoli - 75001 Paris
To take a break between two shoppings
A shopping session can sometimes look like a real marathon with an obstacle course. So to regain your strength, My Webspot has selected two high places of the Paris Fashion Week where you can also taste some well-deserved sweets.
Café Jules du Printemps Haussmann
The Parisian department store set up Le Café Jules on the ground floor of Le Printemps de l'Homme, in a nod to its founder, Jules Jaluzot. This new address will welcome customers between two shoppings. The latter will have the choice between drinking the cocktails concocted by the bartender or tasting the street-food speciality "le Jules": a French-style hot dog.
Café Jules, Printemps de l'Homme, ground floor, 2 Rue du Havre - 75009 Paris
The terrace of Progress
Le Progrès is probably the only Bar-PMU in the world that can boast of hosting the VIPs of Paris Fashion Week. Order a jug of Brouilly on the terrace to get into the bath (and do a crowd bath). The technique of having a table? Sympathize with the waiters who will move heaven and earth to sit down, or more simply come from 5pm. After all, there is no time to enjoy a good Spritz after a hard day of shopping!
Le Progrès, 1 Rue de Bretagne - 75003 Paris
To see and be seen
Paris Fashion Week is also one of the best times to see the stars of the catwalks. To meet top models and other fashionable designers, we recommend a few strategic locations.
The Grand Palais
Chanel, Saint Laurent, Sonia Rykiel... many of France's leading haute couture houses choose the Grand Palais to organise their fashion shows. In the surroundings of the monument, it is often the excitement with many stars and models. Maybe your chance to attend a parade!
The Grand Palais,
The coffee of Flora
Crossing the Seine from the Louvre, we arrive at the famous café de Flore. And the reputation of the place is not only known among French literature lovers: top models also know this authentic little café well - Gigi Hadid, Hailey Baldwin or Alessandra Ambrosio have already been seen there. A must have!
Le Café de Flore, 172 Boulevard Saint-Germain - 75006 Paris
After-shows, private parties and other events are held regularly in this club in the capital during Paris Fashion Week. This is a good opportunity to meet stylists, photographers, influencers and models on the dance floor until the early morning.
At Castel, 15 Rue Princesse - 75006 Paris
