One of the many windows in the ateliers of le Viaduc des Arts, this gown is centered in a gilt frame for viewing. This restored railway viaduc has sixty arches in which are housed cabinetmakers, musical-instrument makers, fashion designers, textile restorers, and other fine crafts/arts.
This Paris walk of window-shopping is found on Avenue Daumesnil between Bastille and Jardin de Reuilly in the 12ième arrondissement. If you tire of the street view, you can ascend the many staircases to the Promenade Plantée, the old train track line itself for a walk above the streets and sidewalks.
