Get ready for the haute couture fashion shows in Paris! They’re on next week, from July 4 to 7, featuring the fall/winter 2011–12 collections. The shows are such a fabulous time in a city whose life and breath is fashion. The variety and scale of the venues should be as inspiring as the clothes: the Grand Palais, the Musée Rodin, the Couvent des Cordeliers, the Théâtre de l’Odéon, the Galerie de la Madeleine… Just imagine the spectacle of combining the art of high fashion with all those evocative architectural spaces.
In the company of the legendary Parisian fashion houses, such as Chanel, Gaultier, Givenchy and Dior, you can sashay to your own beat while working “le look.” To achieve your own version of Paris haute couture, pick any (or all!) of our finds, currently on SALE at Net-a-Porter. Each will take you from runway to rendezvous in style. For the full schedule and locations of the couture shows, visit Mode à Paris.
