Day 3 – Out and about

After seeing the Fatima Lopes show at Le Grand Boullevard we end up having a wander through stunning avenues of the high end stores and come across a gorgeous little sweetshop – pricey but gorgeous. We head over to Chemin Vert where the next show will be held. We are an hour early and the garage thats being converted to catwalk is bustling with activity. Not wanting to be bored we decide to wander the streets. Rue de Turenne is the place to go for a suit. Every other store is a tailor from tiny family run acient businesses to state of the art white showrooms. Going a little deeper into the streets we find the french Brick Lane – stuffed with little boutiques and a surprising American Apparel store! This is the place to be if you want a good buy – its not cheap but this maze of lanes is a shopaholics dream. Now back to ‘Le Garage’ for Luis Buchinho’s impending catwalk show.
