Paris’s pop-up fashion markets

Come to these blink-and-you’ll-miss-them pop-up fashion markets to find your next killer outfit


The glamour capital of the world is powered by more than just Louis Vuitton and bobo chic. Those looking to make a real impression in Paris come to the city's various pop-up markets to try on something a bit different, whether that's a jumper stitched with feathers or a brand of ethically sourced lipstick. Check out our selection of venues and events below – every so often, they open their doors to some of the best-dressed Parisians in town. 

Take Me Out

It’s got the same number of inventive designers, the same mix of accessories, clothes and furniture – if Take Me Out stands out form the crowd, it’s for its air of a bonkers car boot sale. Couture stands, performance artists and unusual workshops for kids and grown-ups. Two days of hip jewellery and cupcake overload.

Hôtel Bohême
Organic produce, recycled treasures, unique pieces: the Hôtel Bohême is the ethical leader of Paris’s pop-up stores.
