(The tour last about 2 hours and is conducted by our fashion specialist Richelle, an American who has lived in Paris for many years. Richelle trained in design and fashion and is a qualified Paris blue badge guide. The tours are an enjoyable mixture of history, anecdotes, and fascinating trivia associated with this theme. The tour will show you both famous names and introduce you some lesser known treasures. You can go inside the shops and have time to make purchases if you want, but the walks do not cover a great deal of ground so you could easily walk back to any shop which has taken your fancy and shop at your leisure)
