    Sashay into the unique fashion classroom of Paris. Through expert-led classes, experience the design process from conception to production. Learn how designers work with patterns, sketches, prototypes, and 3D renderings and use these techniques in creating your own fashion designs.

    Go beyond the glamour and access the day-to-day workings of the industry, including market research and merchandising. Get an inside perspective into showrooms and meetings with buyers. Watch fashion come to life and consider the cultural context of new collections in a front row seat at a runway show in the Galeries Lafayette, the biggest department store chain in Europe. The French capital is a dream for fashion lovers. Look for inspiration in Parisian street style. Stroll past original fashion houses on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré and do some window shopping. More into vintage pieces? Fall in love with the old-world charm of the Marais and its second-hand shops. Get fashion tips from local teens and indulge in the iconic Paris cityscape too, from the Eiffel Tower to the Louvre to a cruise along the Seine.
