Excerpt from an article I just recieved: To meet demand, fashion houses are aggressively opening shops again after a long hiatus. Louis Vuitton recently inaugurated a new boutique in Budapest, while Valentino and Ferragamo signed leases in India. French fashion house Hermes International is expanding its flagship Paris boutique so it will take up half a block. I bet I'm not the only one here thrilled to hear this! Group excursion to Paris, anyone??
