Yesterday was the inaugural Vogue Experience day in Paris, and it was every bit as fabulous as it sounds.
The French fashion bible chose the prestigious Hôtel du Duc near Opéra for the setting, with a dozen or so masterclasses spread across two floors.
Attendees could customize their Nike trainers and Levis denim up on the second floor, while the first floor featured skincare diagnosis with French brand Lierac, a blow dry bar courtesy of Dyson and make-up animations from NYX and Guerlain.
My personal favorite was learning how to authenticate an Hermès Birkin at a masterclass from French online luxury secondhand retailer Vestiaire Collective.
And because fashion is thirsty work, there was a Ladurée tea bar where you could stop and refuel.
The highlight was definitely getting my copy of Vogue Paris signed by editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt. And the Vogue tote bag with a selection of goodies that we were presented with on the way out was the icing on the cake.
