The fashion week arrives in Paris from February 26th to March 1st. To be able to enjoy the same as the elite of fashion, here are some practical tips to participate, in your own way, the most popular week in Paris.
Paris Fashion Week is a busy week between preparations, parades, and after-parties. To dive your way into the heart of fashion week, here is your tailor-made program.
Where Are The Parades?
The parades places arouse a massive craze because they are often historical and unusual. If some creators remain faithful to the same place as Karl Lagerfeld for the Chanel show at the Grand Palais, others redouble their imagination to create a surprise. We remember the last Saint Laurent parade at the foot of the Eiffel Tower.
The places are kept secret until the last moment but we can get a little idea by tracing the most popular spots of the previous years: the Grand Palais, the Palais de Tokyo, the Pompidou Center, the Wagram room or the gardens of the Royal Palace, a favorite place of the designer Isabel Marant.
Follow closely the sites and social networks of your favorite creators and go directly to the parade place to hope to cross models and celebrities at the exit of the show.

This is the place where all the people meet to release the pressure of the day (and show up in all the hot spots of the capital). The Silencio, the Carmen, Lapérouse … the nightclubs hype of Paris are hosts of a night for the most prestigious brands. See you at the Arc Paris to experience the atmosphere of the fashion week alongside Rihanna, The Weeknd or Justin Bieber who have their habits.
