I’ve headed to Paris with the family for a few days, this week. We’re staying in our first Airbnb-booked apartment in the 11th arrondissement. So far, so good!
As the forecast for today looked a bit rainy, we decided to postpone our daytrip to Disneyland Paris until tomorrow and take the opportunity to visit the Louvre instead. Which turned out to be a good thing, as it’s closed on Tuesdays, and on Wednesday we’ve already planned to climb the Eiffel Tower. What fun.
When we got back to the apartment, I used Google to do a bit of sleuthing and discovered it was a structure built for Christian Dior’s catwalk show at this year’s Paris Fashion Week. Here’s a timelapse of how it was built:
A pretty interesting structure. I wonder how “designed” it all was, or whether it was thrown up to look all wiggly. Either way, it seems like a lot of effort – 100 people during 3 weeks – to show off some clothes for an hour or so.
