A regular Friday event, this 30-minute show is free. All you have to do is email them for a reservation of x number of seats. They will email you back for confirmation, have this printed and present it at the door. Yesterday, there were loads of Japanese (as usual) who came to watch. The Americans came in big numbers – 9 in one group!
Yes, that is a (black) wedding dress!
A very Parisian way to wrap up a Parisian Sojourn!
10 September 2007
My very first time to watch a Fashion Show was in Galeries Lafayette years ago, only, they used to hold it in one corner of one of the floors. So when I saw it advertised in the Paris Guide, I knew I must see it again! It was to be held on the same day of our flight back home but luckily, I could still make it!
Outside the venue door, they were checking the booking reference of each one coming in. Oh no! they won’t let me in!! When my turn came, luckily, they just asked me (and few others) to wait until all those who have made reservations were seated. Indeed, there were still a lot of free seats left. Later on, I really felt doubly lucky when the seat I was in allowed me an uninterrupted view of the models walking on the aisle…I was actually just a couple of feet away from them!
Watching fashion shows is like watching a classical concert! I mean, the same rapture I feel while listening to beautiful music is exactly the same as when I am watching beautiful people in their beautiful clothes with their equally beautiful looks and coiffure!! Huh! from now on, I’ll make sure to include a Friday in every Paris trips I’ll make!
This Free Fashion Show is held in the Salon Opéra, 7th Floor of Galeries Lafayette Haussman (behind the Opéra) every Friday at 3 pm. Reservation is a must! Either phone +33 (01) 42 82 30 25 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
It was the Winter Collection 2007 – 2008 of the houses of Diesel, Ralph Lauren, Guess, Kenzo among others…
