Spending Christmas in Paris
Paris is known as the city of lights so it’s no surprise that every year each one of the arrondissements becomes illuminated by all of the most beautiful decorations for Christmas. In today’s post I will be sharing all of my favourite places to go to get into the Christmas spirit as well as the most stunning of decorations.
Flashback to Paris
Here I am at 30 Avenue Montaigne in Paris, the headquarters to one of the world’s most iconic fashion houses since it was first established in 1946 and one of the most inspiring places in Paris when it comes to absorbing the enchantment of the city and its mark on the development of fashion, femininity and haute-couture.
Not so long ago I had the wonderful opportunity of visiting Le Musée des Arts Decoratifs just right next to the Louvre in Paris to explore the magical world of Dior dating right back from the early designs of Christian Dior himself and through the beginnings of Hollywood glamour in the 1940’s and 50’s to present day. The exhibition also had so much to offer on the powerful influence following the debut of Yves Saint Laurent into the couture world as well as an exhibit on the more modern elegance of Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri, the label’s present creative director.
In today’s post I thought I would take you through the world of Dior with me and show you some photos of just some of the most stunning dresses through the years.
