Paris | 02.03.2013 - 06.07.2013

"The Paris Hôtel de Ville is celebrating haute couture with this exhibition. "Paris haute couture" gives visitors an opportunity to admire some exceptional examples of haute couture dresses or outfits, chosen from among the most beautiful pieces in the Galliera museum collections.

Haute couture was born in Paris in the mid-19th century, and the city is still the capital of this special art. By showcasing masterpieces from the Galliera museum, the Hôtel de Ville is paying tribute to this little-known world, one of the jewels in the crown of French culture, and to a Parisian industry characterised by creativity and high-tech expertise."

We usually go to the cinema and let a film transport us into another world and time. But at The Grand Rex, simply entering its doors is a trip back to history in itself.

Alright, so you might have noticed I have a weakness for French real estate porn. [Sigh] I don’t know why I do this to myself. Anyhoo, check out my latest find, a 19th century restored villa up for sale on the French riviera, which writer F.
