Fashion in Paris

travel

By a French student. Museums and districts.

There is so much to do in Paris, but for fashion tourism that’s the best. Enjoy!

Cité de la Mode et du Design

 ILLU LES DOCKS JOUR

Bars on the roof and on first floor. During the night, it becomes a club on the roof.

You can eat too at a very good vegan burger place! It was first a restaurant in Brooklyn, NY, and they opened one in Paris too.

Inside this modern building, there is one famous fashion school “Institut Français de la Mode”. We can see through the windows, its library and some students working.

There are design shops and fashion shops as Bleu de Paname, a French label, and most importantly, there are often or always exhibitions. It was about fashion most of the time when the fashion museum of Paris Palais Galliera was closed but also about all the arts.

Closed during a few years, it opened again in 2013. There’s no permanent exhibition because of the fragility of the clothes but often exhibitions. If there is one when you visit Paris, you must go there!

Musée des Arts Décoratifs

First of all, the fashion part of the museum is free for students and people under 26 years old and it’s never too full. The permanent collection is interesting and the exhibitions are always really cool.

Moreover, there is a lot to see inside. Graphic design exhibitions or industrial design ones… Always things to see.

 La Gaïté Lyrique

La Gaïté Lyrique is not a fashion museum but one of the coolest museums ever. It is an interactive museum about graphic design but also a concert place. You can go there to play free video games, see a funny exhibition (there has been an exhibition “Happy” by Stefan Sagmeister with facts about happiness and giant candy distributor) and then see an indie concert.

Printemps, Galerie Lafayette, Bon Marché, BHV Marais… You have to go there. At least to see the inside, always really cool decorated. For your information: Bon Marché is the best for men fashion, Printemps for women fashion and BHV for decoration, paper books…

The best district to shop is le Marais. You will find international brands as French labels. You can see galleries and walk to Pompidou museum and there eat a traditional Croque Monsieur (warm toasted sandwich) at Dame Tartine. Then you keep walking to the Jardin des Tuileries where the Musée des Arts Décoratifs is and the famous concept-store Colette.

If you want to buy pearls go in Rue des Archives and Rue Vieille du Temple.

For the textiles, it’s just under le Sacré Coeur.
