There’s nothing like Paris in the spring, especially if you fancy yourself a fashionista. Even though Fashion Week has come and gone, Parisian style never wanes. Plan a visit to Paris to witness firsthand the history of French fashion houses and all the couture that’s au courant.

City of Fashion Beacons

To see what the major Paris fashion houses presented this year during Fashion Week, have a look at the French Embassy’s presentation of runway highlights. If you’d like details of some of the other collections, shows, parties and more, visit, which keeps up with virtually every trend, designer and fashion promotion event across the globe.

Shopping Guidance

Not all of us can shop to our heart’s content; after a while, the money runs out. But there are still plenty of ways for you to ogle beautiful clothes for free (or for a very small fee). Paris is home to a number of couture museums, like Les Arts Decoratifs, a museum dedicated to clothes, fabric and decorative arts. The Musée Galliera, dedicated to the history of fashion, is another museum worth visiting.

Non-Fashion Attractions

The Portal of the City of Paris, which hosts the Musée Galliera profile, is a great resource for Paris culture. Look for full descriptions of most major museums, directories to Paris Theaters, information on the Paris Cinéma festival and a list of famous monuments and attractions throughout the city.
