Cost of Reporting on Paris Fashion Week

Posted: May. 3rd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Although people usually ooh and ah over the breathtaking sets and wonder aloud at the costs of a top-tier fashion runway show, they often overlook just how much goes into the reporting that allows them to enjoy something like Paris Fashion Week as though they were sitting right in the front row next to Kanye West.

Though many editors, writers, buyers, and bloggers attend Paris fashion week on an extremely tight budget involving the Paris Metro, Airbnb, and multiple trips to Monoprix for groceries, fashion’s elite–we’re talking the very top of the masthead here–still spend thousands upon thousands of dollars to cover the shows.

While it’s impossible to pin down how much each and every top editor at each and every magazine spends we’ve put together a handy expense report detailing what the average editor at a major magazine submits at the end of these packed nine days.
