Dior-Designer of Dreams at Arts Décoratifs
The Musée des Arts Décoratifs celebrates the 70th anniversary of the creation of the House of Dior until January 7, 2018 in a lavish and comprehensive exhibition, Christian Dior, Designer of Dreams (Couturier du Rêve). Whether or not you are a fashionista, if you love history, fashion (retro and future), fabric, intricate beading, art, interiors, photography, etc. this is a rich exhibit that I can recommend. The Dior Héritage collection and works of art are on loan from museums in France, United States and England. Most of the works featured in exhibit are from the Dior Héritage collection and the first time they are shown in Paris.
Wandering around Paris “Le Nez en l’Air”
Wandering around Paris with your nose in the air is the idea behind a website of self-guided walks. Although it might mean you have no particular goal or end in sight, wandering and gazing around, the website with the same name gives a beginning and ending point with lots in between. Paris has plenty of great, guided and personalized walking tours. Many are listed on my Paris Walking Tours page with more ideas on my Tours, Guides, Walks and Wheels .
