When I shoot an outfit post in Melbourne, I am always trying to find ‘cool’ locations and backdrops but in Paris, you could shoot anywhere and it would be fab. What gets me every time with Paris is not just the fashion, but the architectural history. Here, I am at Place Vendôme (French pronunciation: ?[plas v??dom]) is a square in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, France, located to the north of theTuileries Gardens and east of the Église de la Madeleine. It is the starting point of the Rue de la Paix. Its regular architecture by Jules Hardouin-Mansart and pedimented screens canted across the corners give the rectangular Place Vendôme the aspect of an octagon. The original Vendôme Column at the center of the square was erected by Napoleon I to commemorate the battle of Austerlitz; it was torn down on 16 May 1871, by decree of the Paris Commune, but subsequently re-erected and remains a prominent feature on the square today. Thanks Wikipedia

Many fashion shows were held in the buildings here, one being the Haider Ackermann one I was backstage at.
