Bonjour nevenka famille! We've been away at Paris fashion week, showcasing our new SS19 collection, and what better way to celebrate than with a personal travel guide from our designer, Rosemary. If you have a penchant for croissants, bars with a view and instagram-worthy hotels, keep reading.
EAT at Chez Georges for traditional french cuisine
An old school Parisian brasserie that looks like nothing has been done to it since the 1930s - which completely adds to its appeal. Try the apple tarte, it's outstanding.

EAT at L'Alimentari for simple italian food
The owner & chef from Sardinia produces simple, produce-driven Italian food in a very small space with little elbow room but a wonderful ambience. The pasta is beautiful and make sure you leave room for Paris's best tiramisu.

DRINK at the rooftop bar of Hotel National des Arts et Metiers
Enjoy a glass of wine overlooking the rooftops of Paris at my favourite hotel's bar.

CAFFEINATE at Honor Cafe
It's no secret we're spoiled for coffee in Melbourne but I promise Honor Cafe won't disappoint. Best coffee in Paris.

SHOP beauty at Nose
As the name suggests - a perfumery - with highly knowledgable staff who are obsessive about perfume. Think luxurious Cire Trudon candles, Kevin Murphy hair products and unique scents from Frederic Malle.

Shop vintage at St Ouen Flea Market
Close to the Sacre Coeur Basilica and Moulin Rouge, you'll find one of the most impressive flea markets in the world with the most amazing treasures. It's open Saturday through to Monday.

STAY at the Hotel National des Arts et Metiers
The Paris hotel favoured by the fashion community. During Paris fashion weeks it has the best dressed hotel clientele on the planet! Beautiful interior design behind a classic Haussmannian facade and conveniently located between the Marais & the quarter of Montorgueil.

RELAX at the Palais-Royal Garden
Paris has beautiful gardens and this is one of my favourites. A serene escape in the city.

VISIT Marché Raspail
It is an absolute must to visit the food markets. My favourite is Marché Raspail in St Germain. It has been running since 1920 and has everything you need in an intimate environment. A wonderful selection of organic fruit, vegetables, cheese, bread, pastries and flowers.
