Paris Fashion Week: Where to Stay & What to Do
8 January 2012
Paris Fashion Week with Luxury Hotel Balzac
Paris Fashion Week gets its first outing of 2012 this January, when the Men's fall / winter collection -- and the marquee Haute Couture event -- are held in the city between 18 - 26 January.
As the most stylish people in the industry flock to Paris along with the voyeurs, connoisseurs and debonairs... the Parisian streets take on an air of the Fashion Week runways themselves, to form one of the most beautiful, well dressed throngs of people you're ever likely to encounter.
The Biggest Shows & the Greatest Designers
These eager fashionistas will all be clamouring for the first glimpse of the new designs from luxury brands such as: Dior, Givenchy, Alexandre Vauthier, Valentino, Jean Paul Gautier, Maxime Simoens, Christophe Josse, Chanel, Maurizo Galante, Yiquing Yin, Valli... and a host of usual suspects, first timers and breakthrough designers.
If you're thinking about joining them for the first Paris Fashion Week of the season, you can check out the full schedule of shows here.
