As the looks from fashion week emerge on the front cover of magazines and our Instagram feeds, we begin to get excited about what new styles will be on the street as well as on the runway. Many people take this opportunity to travel to see the fashion in person and do a bit of sightseeing. This season we had the chance to attend Paris Fashion Week! While there we checked out some amazing exhibitions and found some wonderful places to stop for food in between. Here are five places to visit in Paris this season, with some bonus stops along the way for great food.

If you are in Paris for business or during fashion week it may feel like there isn't time to relax with so much going on. It is a good idea to research places you would be interested in before leaving your hotel so you do not get lost or frustrated with directions if you are already on a tight schedule. We hope that these exhibits spark your interest and you have fun finding places to eat around the city.
