Fashion and Paris, Paris and Fashion… During many centuries these two words has bean inseparably linked with each other. Coming here, like it or not, you understand it and realize all significance of the fashion industry, how much it had exerted influence upon the city, made it more interesting and attractive to people from every corner of the globe.

Hundreds (or maybe thousands) boutiques of the leading brands lure travelers. Every year, the fashion weeks take place and gather the best designers and couturiers of the planet, and, of course, connoisseurs of their art, as far as “work” is not a proper word which could describe activity of these masters who make our life more bright and stylish. 🙂

And if fashion and its history are interesting for you, we would advise you to visit an amazing exhibition Fashion Forward: Three Centuries of Fashion (Trois Siècles de Mode (1715-2015)) at the Parisian Museum of Decorative Arts (Arts Décoratifs museum).
The exhibition numbers about three hundred exhibits that show to the guests the most important moments in development of the European fashion for the last centuries, its influence on social relations and history of the humanity.
