The Recap: French Culture Nights- Fashion Cruise

Meet our special guest blogger for the week, Kenza! Kenza was born in Morocco, is a business student in Paris, and currently improving her English with New York Language Center. For Fashion week, Kenza attended a Cruise sponsored by French Culture Nights, and is now sharing her experience! Enjoy!


Fashion week is one of the most famous events in New York. The one in September undoubtedly remind us the end of the summer…
To celebrate this week, a lot of events are organized and one of them was the French Night Party association. They decided to invite people in a boat. The cruise was an opportunity to meet (of course) a lot of French, but more important the guests would have a full evening scheduled. This initial plan was to leave the harbor around 8 for 3 hours shipping. While you are enjoying the picturesque view of the city, you have the possibility to admire an amazing fashion show and attend an exhibition. Besides, the cruise would be animated by a DJ who will burn the dance floor!
Unfortunately, maybe the aims were too high, so almost everything collapsed. The boat cruise was saved but it left the marina very late. The DJ was in fact just a guy with a computer playing old French songs. Instead of a show, there were 3 models changing three times and walking on the boat among the guests. The French were all here waiting for something to change the trend of the party, and it comes at the very end when they opened the door in the Harbor. In conclusion, the lesson you must remember, there is no escape from a boat, so you have to be careful when you choose one!


  1. I was also at this French Culture Nights with my husband! This event was great to meet people and not only French actually. Great artists, enjoyable Dj, friendly staff, some amuse bouche and we spent an amazing night. So, I've search for their website ( and I was surprised to learn that there is a French Culture Night each month in a unique venue and with different artist! I'm addicted now :)
