Let us tell you how to attend this thrilling and extravagant event and discover the best places to eat, drink and stay to experience Paris Fashion Week to its full!
Where to eat?
If you are looking for a classic French cuisine, few things scream French more than soufflés, stop in at Le Récamier for soufflés that tower over their ramekins. Located in the 7th arrondissement, this restaurant has made it their mission to serve the lightest, airiest, most flavorful soufflés that you’ll ever eat.
Also located in the 7th arrondissement, this place offers one of the most prestigious Chinese restaurant with a cuisine that doesn’t sacrifice substance for style. Owned by the notorious Costes brothers and personally decorated by Jacques Garcia. This place aims to recreate Shanghai of the 20s in a moody dining room of red paper lanterns, leather banquettes and black lacquer details. Could Shanghai be the next fashion week destination?
Le Mini Palais
If you are looking for a cosmopolitan buzzy vibe, you should head to the stunning Grand Palais. Located inside the Parisian landmark, a beautiful restaurant awaits that’s led by three-Michelin-starred chef Eric Frechon. Enjoy as he serves modern cooking with global touches. The Mini Palais is among Paris’s most stylish dining rooms, but the menu is the real draw!
Where to go out for star-spotting?
It doesn’t get more “in” than le Montana specially during Paris Fashion Week, Paris’s answer to Studio 54! This club might just be the most exclusive one in the city. After all, it’s not unheard of for supermodels to be turned away at the door. Le Montana is a VIP magnet – Karl Lagerfeld, Lenny Kravitz, Vanessa Bruno and Kate Moss have all hit the floor here since it’s relaunch during Paris Fashion Week 2010.
Designed by famed filmmaker David Lynch, No doubt about it, Silencio is a true Lynch masterpiece. Club Silencio is a stunning and ultra-exclusive nightclub/bar/concert venue/whatever-eccentric-show-Lynch-has-in-mind-tonight kind of place. This place attracts worldly urban Americans and hip Parisians. During Paris Fashion Week, the top dogs in Fashion and Film can be found there.
Where to stay?
Finding accommodation in Paris at this time of the year isn’t always easy – namely as people from all over the world flock to Paris each Fall to have a closer look at the latest fashion trends. Hotels will be very busy at this time and if you don’t want to put up with noisy guests, room service trays in the hall, sharing pools… an apartment away from the crowds in Paris will be the perfect solution – without compromising on comfort or style!
First, you will have so many things to do during this busy week that you will appreciate that check-in and check out can be done at your convenience if you stay in an apartment rental. Plus for the price of a standard four-star hotel room, you can have your own suite, with its living room and fully equipped kitchen, this could be perfect for your little after party with your new hip Parisian friends!
You are now more than ready for Paris Fashion Week. See you there!
