As an online women's fashion retail destination, it is always a pleasure for us to visit new cities, and meet talented names from the fashion industry. Last September, we had the pleasure to take a business, and pleasure, trip to Paris, where we also attended the Who’s Next Trade Show.
It turned out to be a journey of complete and utter exhilaration, and we simply couldn’t tire of feasting our eyes on the beguiling glamour and glitzy lights of the city. Needless to say, Paris is, without doubt, the fashion capital of the world and we were delighted to make an entrance.
Paris turned out to be such an excitingly wonderful experience. We lost ourselves to the glitzy glamour of Champs Elysees and the artistic splendours of the Louvre. The Basics CY team had a splendid time visiting the culturally rich streets of Paris, the Galeries Lafayette, strolling through the glorious abbeys of Notre Dame, and devouring delicacies at a cosy café in Montmartre. We clicked dozens of selfies at the lovely France carousel in Le Marais, but the Eifel Tower took up most of our time, and with pleasure, for it is a site no one wants to leave.
The bohemian air of Paris certainly takes a person into a trance of adventure and freedom. If you want to give yourself an experience of raw and surreal glamour, head over to Champs Elysees and feast your eyes on some of the hottest boutiques on this planet.
The Basics CY team also had the pleasure of attending the Who’s Next Paris Trade Show. We were reminded of the fact that Paris is truly the global fashion capital, for we encountered designers who presented a wide cultural and racial diversity, which is undoubtedly a refreshingly progressive change within the industry. We adored being a part of this spectacular event, for it introduced us to some insanely glamorous French and International brands. It is truly such an extraordinary opportunity to increase your knowledge and network, and to present it to our fashionable goddess.
