Watch for a special expo that interests you as this is a very good display space along the Seine. Devoted to fashion design, an important local industry and art form. more »

Went out by myself to party for my last night in Paris on my first personal vacation. Nursed a hangover from the night before through the majority of the day and wound up walking to the City of Fashion and Design for a night out. There were so many clubs in there all with great music, great people, stylish venues with great views of the city. I would go back with more confidence and talk to people there more if I had a do-over.
This is one of amazing building it's super nice during night there's no more 4 disco club in one place.
5 stars for the Seine view. Awesome evening pictures.
Easy access from nearby Metro. Attended an exhibition there and easy access with good facilities. Rooftop terrace has great views over the Seine.
Description is WRONG ~~no exhibitions! Just a school. No point in visiting unless you are considering enrollment.
