An American Girl in Paris: Orient Hermes Exhibit

Fashion, Paris. Paris, Fashion. It seems like you cannot mention one without thinking of the other. Living in Paris for 3 months now, I have had the pleasure of experiencing life and culture abroad while incorporating my love for fashion every step of the way.

I recently went to an Hermes Exhibit at the Institut du Monde Arabe. The exhibit featured the voyages of Leila Menchari-Β  chief designer and stylist of Hermes since 1978.

Leila Menchari is known for her assembling the most alluring window displays for the Hermes store in Paris (which I saw for myself and it was exquisitely impressive!) Her craft is inspired by her childhood memories of Tunisia and her numerous travels around the Mediterranean.
