Violette Sauvage vide dressing at La Cour du Marais

This weekend is the Violette Sauvage vide dressing at La Cour du Marais on Paris’ rue des Archives.

Taking place on March 11 and 12 in an 850m2 showroom, the event promises new and secondhand clothes, bags, shoes and accessories priced at €5 and €10. Entry is €2, and includes a free coffee.
