I first fell in love with Paris when I did a study abroad program there in between my junior and senior years of college. I loved the language, food, life and fashion of the city and its inhabitants. As an adult revisiting a place you enjoyed as a student, it is a much different experience. I am not as adventurous as I was then and took more taxi’s then ever to get around, before I would have braved the metro! Nonetheless, the business of fashion was in full swing and the main purpose of my trip.  I saw so many wonderful brands, shows, and events.  Here are a few of my favorite shots below and more are on my travel page.

I loved her style so much and she was super sweet.  Spotted at the Yves Saint Laurent store, where I did some damage!

Such cute window displays!

A little garden cafe in the Marais.

 

We went to see Ugo Cacciatore’s jewerly in this little aparment with this amazing spiral staircase up to where he was showing.

 

This was the entrance to where Ugo was showing, after you entered a large door on the street you enter this courtyard.

 

Creative Door Agency, such a cool space.

 

The sun was shining nicely on this building.

 

Site of the WOMAN show in Paris.

 

My dream car, a vintage mini cooper!

The setting for a picture here was too pretty to pass up.

Site of Capsule show. I love the chandeliers.

 

Just outside the Louvre, where the Tranoi show was.

 

Lunch at Hotel Costes, such a trendy scene! Every designer & fashion person was there.

 

I just loved this fountain.  Enough said.
