Fashion Forward On Paris Tours

By Expert Author: Noshir Lavangia

If you love fashion, then Europe tours will be particularly exciting for you. It’s safe to say that most seasonal fashion trends begin in Paris or Milan and then make their way across the world. These two cities have for decades now been on the forefront of fashion and lifestyle innovation. Fashion designers dream of showcasing their work at Paris fashion week. You know brands have ‘made it’ only when they open shop in Paris and impress the extremely fashion conscious Parisians. Women and men in Paris dress up and make a style statement even while walking down the road to buy coffee! If you’re a budding fashionista, then Paris tours will inspire you and leave you coming back for more.

Some of the world’s most recognized high-end brands call Paris their home; Chanel, Dior, Hermes and Louis Vuitton to name a few. Most of these brands and other equally prolific ones have sprawling showrooms on Avenue Montaigne or Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore. Both of these roads are a short walk away from the Champs-Elysees Avenue, which is a popular tourist destination included in almost all Paris tours. If you are staying in another part of Paris then you can take the metro, and get out at the conveniently located Champs-Elysees station. Besides the French fashion labels, you can also visit showrooms of international brands like Valentino, Versace, Prada, Armani, Ralph Lauren, D&G on Avenue Montaigne.

If snooty big labels aren’t your thing, then Paris is equally exciting for the bargain shopper. You must pay a visit to the flea market on Porte de Clignancourt, fondly called Les Puces or ‘the fleas’ by the locals. This is the largest antique market in all of Europe, where you can buy vintage jewellery and accessories, second hand dresses, used jackets and shoes, purses and bags and much more. If you don’t want to be struggling to browse among throngs of shoppers, then go to the flea market in the morning. Post lunch and all the way to closing time the market gets quite crowded. When you shop here, be careful with your valuables and come prepared to bargain.

In Paris it pretty common to buy second hand clothes, in fact, the city has an entire subculture of people who glorify vintage used clothing. These
hand-me-down lovers are referred to as the bobo fashionistas, or the bourgeois-bohème. When on Europe tours to Paris you must indulge a little bit in this trend and visit these charming vintage shops. You might find a priceless old army jacket or tiered Victorian dress you can never find in posher fashion boutiques.

Don’t even attempt travelling to Paris on a budget, come prepared to shop till you drop, even if it means pulling in extra hours and double shifts when you return home with a severely depleted bank balance! It will be absolutely worth it!
