Fleur de Paris information
Some stores in New Orleans exist to indulge the most eccentric and particular interests a person can possibly have. This boutique in the Labranche Building is a case in point. The woman who wants to appear ready for the 1904 St Louis World’s Fair need look no further. The custom hats are bouquets of plumage, fur felt, lace and, here and there, a snatch of black netting. The evening gowns are devastating showstoppers guaranteed to make a dapper Dan in spats swoon. The store’s website suggests wearing one to the Academy Awards. Failing that, you’ll want to promenade around a city park or at least have your picture taken.
