Paris is not only the city of lights but also the fashion capital of the world. Despite a considerable degree of competition from other cities (like Milan, New York and London), fashion is a deep-rooted aspect of France’s culture and its international
profile – and most likely always will be.
Chanel, Dior, Saint Laurent, Hermes, Louis Vuitton are just some of the famous designers for whom people come from all over the world. French designers have long created the most renowned and coveted fashion brands in the world. Stylistically innovative and technically exceptional, the outstanding reputation of the French clothing industry can be traced as far back as the 17th century, and it is a reputation that has only continued to strengthen since. Paris is currently home to the headquarters of Rochas, Vuitton, Balenciaga, Céline, Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Dior, Givenchy, Chloe, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Hermès and Lanvin.
This shopping district of Paris provides the ultimate dose in high-end fashion. In an area bordered by the Champs-Elysées, Avenue Montaigne and Avenue Marceau, visitors can find the world’s top design houses – from Dior to Chanel to Yves Saint Laurent.
Avenue des Champs-Elysées
Frequently described as ‘the world’s most beautiful avenue’, the Avenue des Champs-Élysées is a Paris must-see. Tourists and Parisians can be spotted strolling at any time of day or night and at any time of year along this iconic two-kilometre stretch between the Place de la Concorde and the Arc de Triomphe. Like the Eiffel Tower, the avenue is a symbol of Paris. It is lined with gastronomic restaurants, luxury boutiques , flagship stores and nightclubs. It is also the setting each year for major events such as the Bastille Day military parade, the arrival of the Tour de France and the Christmas lights.
Finally, the Avenue des Champs-Elysées has some of the top museums in Paris: the Grand Palais, the Petit Palais, the Palais de la Découverte and the Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton. Round off your visit by climbing all the way to the top of the Arc de Triomphe for a spectacular view of Paris! 💟
Created in 1850, Avenue Montaigne is named after the 16th-century French writer Michel de Montaigne, famous for his Essais. The city’s focal point for high fashion and luxury goods, the avenue is home to all the great haute couture stores, such as Chanel, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, Chloé, Céline, Thierry Mugler, Saint Laurent Paris, Prada.
Avenue Marceau is the third point of the famous Golden Triangle. There, you can also enjoy some tasty french food, visit the luxury shops and take good photos.
If you are a fashion lover, as I am, the Golden Triangle is the best place for you.
Have a nice stay in Paris and see you soon!!!
