My Visit to Paris - the Hermès Women's Spring-Summer Runway Show

If you love fashion, do try to visit Paris during Fashion Week.

I've always been drawn to the world of fashion - and of course, the French luxury label Hermès, one of the most successful design companies in the world. While in Paris last week, I attended the Hermès Spring Show 2024, which was held at La Garde Republicaine, the training center for the horses of the French Republican Guard. For this runway show, Hermès womenswear creative director, Nadège Vanhée, was inspired by springtime, wildflowers, and grassy meadows. The Collection highlighted a luxurious palette of reds, browns, and blacks on natural fabrics of leather, cashmere, silk, and cotton to showcase easy early summertime staples such as skirts, coats, trousers, and dresses. It was a presentation of elegant simplicity - just leave it to Hermès. During this trip, I also ate at a handful of delicious restaurants including L'Avenue, Mieux, and Cloche. It was a full itinerary, but also full of fun and good company.
