Indian summer is coming to an end in the French capital. So, it’s now pumpkin spice latte time with tons of Fall activities that have only just begun!
Since the start of the school year, Parisians have been swept up in a whirlwind of activities with one event following another such as Salon Maison et Objet, Paris Design Week, and of course Fashion Week (See our article on Fashion Week) that have brought together the international community.
September began with the most iconic of design shows – Maison et Objet. This not to be missed event has been welcoming exhibitors from all over the world since 1995. With a desire to involve the entire Paris design community, M&O launched Paris Design Week in 2011. This show, held parallel to M&O enables “the whole city to reveal the innumerable talents it conceals” (source: Maison et Objet website).Taking place throughout the city, all forms of art are on display during an intense two weeks of events and happenings.
Next up was Fashion Week where after New York and Milan, the world fashion capital showed off what it can do. September Fashion Week can be considered a sports event. Major fashion houses or Maisons prepare their runway shows, a key moment for presenting their future women’s collections. But, it’s not just the catwalks that draw a crowd: showrooms are just as packed with buyers perusing the upcoming season’s catalogs. Whether in beautiful Parisian apartments or in street level galleries, multi-brands are snapping up the limited available spaces. Many counted MR Agency to find the perfect exhibit space such as Cult Gaia, Nanushka as well as multi-brand showrooms like Arddun Agency from England and The Known Agency from Australia.
