From the dizzying heights of the Pompidou Center to the lofty halls of the Musée d’Orsay, Paris fashion houses showed off the city’s most monumental art museums on Monday, March 7, as they near the finish line of ready-to-wear collections. Guests watched as vibrant autumn/winter styles snaked in between marble sculptures, avant-garde installations and Oscar-winning celebrities on the season’s penultimate day.
