  • 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.
