My trip to Paris

I visit Paris twice a year to attend the global textile event for fashion professionals. During those trips I also visit my suppliers most of whom are located in Paris or the outskirts. This time round I decided to make this trip a little more cultured and adventurous. Starting with my hotel – I picked a weird one, Hotel Amour. I have to say I really enjoyed my stay there. The rooms are corky, the restaurant and bar get very busy at night, the staff was friendly, and they have such a cute and cosy terrace and garden!!! I fell in love with it!

During this trip I have spent a lot of time learning new trends and technologies. You can find out more about upcoming trends for this summer here (link). Here I am at the event, chatting to my suppliers.

 

I also visited my fur supplier during my visit. He is located in the centre of Paris, and does a lot of work for Hermès. I have ordered a variety of fox fur shawls – they are an absolute luxury and are specially made in Paris for my boutique. They are handmade using a unique technique to make them reversible – a great idea for a timeless Christmas gift for that special lady.

On my last day I went to Galerie Kreo – it was recommended to me by a friend, as I am shopping for new furniture pieces for my apartment. They sell vintage tables and chairs along with lighting from world famous designers. I have since been debating with myself over a drawer unit…
