Spring 2014 Fashion Week is almost wrapped up in Paris. As I see the reviews for different designers on various fashion blogs, I am reminded of the time when I had the chance to hang outside the Valentino show in the Tuileries Garden a few years ago. It was the best people watching! I highly recommend checking out the scene before a show even for just a few minutes. You never know who (or what) you might see. Of course, some of the show locations are top secret and by invitation only. But many of the show dates, times and locations can be found on the Mode à Paris website. And quite a few of the shows are at easy-to-find locales such as the Grand Palais or Palais de Tokyo.
Although I did not actually get to see the Valentino show, I did have some good celebrity sighting including one my favorite French bloggers, Garance Doré as well as the esteemed Bill Cunningham of the New York Times.
