There's a little non-descript boutique that I pass often that has some role in haute couture scene in Paris. My mother in law was so intigued she walked in a few years ago and I beleive she said that specialize in beading. I don't think much of it on a daily basis, but I noticed the people hard at work last Sunday night. They were working on this beautiful halter with what looked like rose petals on the front. I wanted to take a picture of the beautiful piece through the window but I was afraid they'd run after me and yell that I was taking pictures of their private, intellectual property. I'm a chicken, but I did get reprimanded last week when I took a picture of the Gucci folks when I was shopping at Galeries Lafayette. I took a picture of the Gucci line... the line which people wait on to be able to have the privilege of shopping at Gucci with only a few people at a time. When I took the picture the securrity guard came after me and scared me to death because I had already turned to walk somewhere else.
Anyway, when I saw the folks hand stitching pieces of fabric at 7:30pm on a Sunday night I figured that the Paris Fashion shows must be coming to town soon. As far as I can tell, they'll be here on January 24 (I guess that's when we'll have the week of celebrity sightings too).
