Paris is the fashion capital of the world and pretty much anyone who sets foot on the Parisian soil or passes through their airport terminals, are known to up their fashion quotient, to fit in. Celebrating this and coinciding with the ongoing Paris Fashion Week (up to March 9), Aéroports de Paris will showcase their beautiful and very fashionable passengers with an exhibition at the Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport and Paris City Hall.
The exhibition will features pictures by photographer Jonathan Paciullo, who over the last three months have been snapping at the thousands of passengers at the airport every day. Paciullo, is known for his street fashion image bank, called ‘www.FrenchyStyle.com’, has extensive experience covering some of the biggest Fashion Weeks, including those in New York, London, Milan, and Paris.
His pictures here will include hipsters, serious fashionistas, people from around the world in their traditional outfits and your regular Joe in his everyday jeans. Pictures include large-scale photographs of 27 subjects and can be viewed at Charles de Gaulle Airport’s nine terminals until March 19. The exhibition is also up for viewing at the Paris City Hall, since March 1, 2016. The airport will also screen the film “Fashion Loves Paris”, that showcases Paris’ expertise in fashion and handicrafts, on screens at the baggage reclaim area. The airport wants to immerse everyone who passes through their doors, what fashion means to the city, especially during Fashion Week.
For someone who loves the elegance that came with travelling back in the day, we love travelers who take their #airportstyle seriously. If this exhibition will encourage passengers to leave their sweats at home, we say keep the exhibition on all-year-round. Tell us your airport style!
