Paris Trip!

 Almost immediately after finals we went on a class trip to Munich and Paris to experience all of the wonderful cultural experiences both cities have to offer.  I will post about Munich and the textile exhibition next, but for now here is a glimpse into my week of perfection in Paris.   We spent the first couple of days of the trip going on tons of appointments to famous fashion houses including Yves Saint Laurent, Chloe, Comme des Garcons, Hermes, Sonia Rykiel, and many many more.  We were privileged enough to get personal tours and appointments at these couture studios. On top of that, Sydney and I spent our evenings going into just about every museum possible.  Although it was record breaking cold the entire trip, I had a life changing time soaking up all of the French food, art, and culture.


After finals and right before our trip to Paris I cut off all of my hair!





Wonderful view of Le Bastille on the way to our hotel.

The famous and stunning Notre Dame.





It was so beautiful filled from floor to ceiling with thousands of books both old and new.

We stopped for a tea break to escape from the bitter cold at the beautiful Mosque.

This is just a very brief touch on all of the Incredibly Amazing things I did while in Paris.  The instant I arrived I fell in love with the beauty of the culture, people, and city!
