Tea and Style at our "Fashion Saturdays"
Back in the 1960s, Le Bristol Paris was already a firm favourite with fashion aficionados. This grand hotel has now reclaimed its role as a player in the fashion world with its now famous Fashion Saturdays.
From 2:30 pm until 4:00 pm you can admire signature garments from a particular collection with a high tea including a glass of champagne and a custom-made dessert.
Designer Christian Lagerwaard , born in Germany with a Dutch nationality and living like a Frenchman, started his professional career at the age of 20 after winning the ‘Concours de Couture’ for which he was decorated with the “Prix Guy Laroche” in 1985.
By invitation of Guy Laroche, Christian arrived in Paris a few months later where he was introduced to the world of haute couture.
It was the beginning of a love story between the young Dutchman from a province town and the worldly glamour of Paris where the magic happened.
Natural fabrics as well as innovative materials and craftsmanship are important keys to the collection’s development as Christian loves to research new structures and shapes in order to combine these with his love for strong feminine silhouettes and his architectural approach during the process of creation.
