I had a Sensational trip to Paris in June and July of this year. We did so many amazing things. All sorts of different things, sightseeing, eating, concerts- as there is just so much to do in Paris on any given day. One of the great things we did was take in the free fashion retrospective, Paris Haute Couture at the Paris Town Hall (Mairie de Paris). It was great.
|And it was free!|
|Any excuse to visit the Town Hall is worth it|
|It's an amazing building,|
we'd walked past many times but this was our first venture inside
there are usually several exhibitions on there at any time
|Sadly photos were interdit|
so most of my photos are terrible
but the frocks were sensational
Fashion isn't really my thing, but the exhibition often paired a vintage piece with a newer frock, to show design elements over time. It was a celebration of design and craftmanship. And cleverly done.
|The ladies were well fascinated|
and thoroughly enjoyed it
|The boys amused themselves with a new game|
Dr Who or Eurovision
(deciding if each piece would be better suited to be worn for Dr Who or Eurovision)
