Hey guys!

I'm urgently flying to Europe this weekend for a buying trip... will have 1 day in Paris and about a week in Milan. Would be glad if somebody can take me out for coffee there. I have absolutely no time to prepare for this trip in terms of sightseeing and I have never been to both of these cities before.


I would also appreciate recommendations on all possible fashion related experiences there - shops, show-rooms, events, networking... etc. I'm in search of inspiration and new brands to launch in Vietnam now.

sorry can't help - but I can give you this suggestion about milan: if you have a little free time (and, really, a little will do it) walk from the train station to the cathedral. if you job, it is a great, easy, jog. the train station is fantastic, and the way between the buildings is also very nice. if you have a little more time, see the cathedral and the gallaria by the cathedral, one of the worlds first closed "malls".

enjoy

Check out l'Eclaireur's rue Herold location... As a matter of fact, just hang around Montorgueil for a day. Go to le Lezard and Nero for food and drinks.

A day in Paris is like a one ride voucher for Disney Land.
