Walking tour of Paris couture


Walk in the footsteps of Vuitton, Worth, Chanel and Dior with a new guided walking tour of Paris devoted to the history of couture. The three-hour “Conceiving Couture: Fashion History in Paris” walk starts at the Palais Royal and explores the city’s fashion roots. Along the way, you’ll see where the first glass-fronted shops were built in the 18th-century, visit the side-street ateliers of the early stylists, and learn about the rise of the grands magasins and the city’s best-known couturiers.

The tour costs €80; see contexttravel.com
