Paris Haute Couture, Hôtel de Ville
My own wardrobe nowadays consists essentially in black t-shirts, black cardigans and jeans. Nothing too fanciful, you see.
Nevertheless, despite this apparent lack of sartorial passion, haute couture IS special, even to me.
At the Paris City Hall are exhibited 120 créations, ranging from plain everyday dresses to sequined, multicoloured evening gowns, most of them lent from the Musée de la Mode (Musée Galliéra).
My one reproach would be that the venue is too small, or too jam-packed; it's hard to see properly for want of space.
But the dresses are mesmerizing!
