It's rare to find an American brand down avenue Montaigne, but Ralph Lauren deserves his place here, despite never having attended fashion college.
His trademark polo symbol and short sleeve mesh shirts, launched in the seventies and available in dozes of different colours, have become fashion classics, enabling him to build an empire worth nearly $3 billion.
Ralph Laurent is now over 20 different brands aimed at different markets, as many different perfumes, plus Ralph Lauren Home and even Ralph Lauren paint!
Of course it would be impossible to fit all that into one store, but the avenue Montaigne outlet would be the place to start when visiting Paris.
The Paris Fashion Week has become a major opportunity for fashion designers to present their collections. Fashion Weeks also take place in New York, London, Milan and Madrid. Fashion Week is held in the Carrousel du Louvre and the Tuileries as well as at various other venues throughout the city.
This fall edition will keep you up to date on the very latest trends in the fashion world. Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Paul Smith… These runway shows are held to advertise and to increase sales for famous fashion designers.
