Our Paris Trip
Very early one morning last week, Christina, Linda and I (Jackie) arrived at one of London’s most beautiful train stations, St.Pancras. We were there to catch a train to Paris’ Gare Du Nord, where we were to spend 3 days “inspiration hunting” (shopping!!).
We stayed in a lovely hotel, called the Hotel Design Sorbonne. It was small, but perfectly formed right opposite the stunning Sorbonne University. Here is the view from my room window.
We saw lovely fabrics.
And even caught a glimpse of the famous Eiffel Tower from a taxi window (have to look hard!)
Christina used lunch times at Les Deux Magots to gather her thoughts and begin to design SS12.
I used the time to take photos…like a proper tourist.
We ended our final day at one of our favourite shops, Merci, in the arty district of the Marais. They have this wonderful car outside.
All in all, it was a lovely trip which left us all full of exciting ideas for the next season.
