PARIS, FRANCE - Today was all about exploring the shopping scene in Paris and discovering fashion trends for the next season.
After a typical Parisian breakfast (café au lait, chocolate croissant, yoghurt, fresh orange juice) and an early lunch at a Chinese restaurant in Montmartre (Asian food in Paris is really good!), we headed back to WHO'S NEXT trade show to attend Spring/Summer 2015 Trend Seminar.

In the afternoon, there was time to visit famous Galeries Lafayette (second most visited attraction in Paris after the Eiffel Tower!) and nearby fashion stores. The annual summer sales are the best time to go shopping in the city as they tend to include practically every shop, from designer boutiques to supermarkets.
Summer Sales 2014 has started on 25th June and will run until 29th July 2014. The hotspots for deals range from classic department stores like Galeries Lafayette or Le Bon Marché, to small, up-and-coming boutiques and discount designer shops around Les Halles or the Marais district. Discounts start at 30% and on the final days reach 70%. Don't miss it!
