    Learn insider secrets of the world’s haute couture capital on a private themed tour. Meet up with your guide, an industry professional with an advanced degree in fashion design, outside the La Comédie-Française theatre in the first arrondissement. Set off on a leisurely stroll through the most fashionable districts in the heart of the city while your guide shares insight into the history of Parisian high fashion and current trends and designers that are making waves.

    See the famous fashion houses of Rue Saint-Honoré and Rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honoré, and visit vintage shops and small boutiques to see where well-dressed locals shop. Ogle baubles at the jewelry shops of Place Vendôme, and pop into the famous department store Colette to admire an astonishing collection of clothes, accessories and cosmetics.

    Ask all the questions you like and get tips on the best places to shop throughout the city so you can add a touch of Parisian elegance to your own wardrobe. The 3-hour tour concludes near the French president’s home at the Palais de l'Élysée.
