The Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe Hotel is giving Parisians and hotel guests the opportunity to discover spring/summer 2014 fashion trends though a series of unique RLife LIVE events inspired by fashion. On Friday night, the hotel was transformed into a catwalk as guests were treated to an intimate fashion show curated by model and J Model Management founder, Jessica Minh Anh. Now through 19 June, the Renaissance Arc de Triomphe Hotel is showcasing some of the most unique pieces from the catwalk in an exclusive exhibition open to the public.
The fashion show featured key collections from the highly anticipated J Spring Fashion Show, which took place the day before from a spectacular floating catwalk on the River Seine. Sublime haute couture pieces and ready to wear high-end items from designers Ha Linh Thu, Elite Sposa UK, Yumi Katsura and Robert Abi Nader were selected for the fashion show at Renaissance Arc de Triomphe, providing guests with intimate access to some of fashion’s hottest talent.
The fashion exhibition, open to the public until 19 June, features a dramatic fashion wall in the hotel lobby showcasing handbags by Silvian Heach and a stunning haute couture gown by Carlos Vigil. The exhibition provides an opportunity for visitors to rediscover the hotel, a reference in modern design, and experience the bar, its cocktail menu, and the Franco-Indonesian restaurant: the Makassar.
“It is a privilege to showcase these beautiful pieces in the Renaissance Arc de Triomphe,” said Doris Schaefgen, general manager of the hotel. “As we approach Renaissance Hotels’ global Day of Discovery, where we encourage guests to ‘get out and discover’ something new, we are delighted to offer these stunning creations within the hotel and create a unique and unforgettable experience.”
