A Glimpse of Our 2011 Paris Tour
A private tour designed by LI Fashion Tours International
Arrived in Paris
Paris, a cosmopolitan City of Lights. Paris, the Fashion Capitol of France, is one of the world’s most important cities for fashion in the world. Famed for its high-fashion, awesome museums, fashion industry trade shows, inspiring art and architecture, is also the center of theater, literature and philosophy throughout the ages.
Nickname La dame de fer, the iron lady, is a wrought iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris. Built in 1889 as the entrance arch to the 1889 World’s Fair, it has become both a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. The tower is the tallest building in Paris and the most-visited paid monument in the world; millions of people ascend it every year. It is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.
La Chateau Louis Vuitton Museum and Library
The Institute of Fashion Merchandising features postgraduate programs brings together designers, managers, and industry through crossover projects. This program recruits designers from all over the world chosen for their strong personality, their creativity and willingness to create concrete projects in direct partnership with industry and big fashion houses.
Fabric Shopping in the Village Montmartre
All the fabric shops worth visiting are nestled below the Montmartre hill, just under the Sacré-Coeur, so you can do some great sight-seeing while fabric shopping.
Explore Les Arts Decoratifs, Paris’ Museum of Artistic Fashion where you will view decorative Arts, Fashion and Textiles, and Advertising from historic to contemporary collections. While there you’ll be transported to other times and places as your imagination takes over and the conversations spark the creativity in you.
Tour of the Louvre Museum
The Palais du Louvre, built to defend the city in the 13th century, now safeguards one of the world’s greatest art collections. Today you will explore this famous museum with a local fashion expert. Enter the museum through world-renowned architect I.M. Pei’s 1989 modernist glass pyramid. Inside, discover priceless antiques from Egypt, Greece, Italy, and Asia such the statues of Venus de Mio and Nike of Samothrace, better known as Winged Victory. You’ll also see some of the Louvre’s most prized paintings by Renaissance and European masters, including Leonardo da Vinci’s painting of the mysterious Mona Lisa.
La Premier Vision Exhibition * if scheduling permits
The Musée Galliera is housed in the 19th century Renaissance style palace that was owned by the Duchesse Galliera, who had the mansion built in 1888 and when she died, she donated the palace to the City of Paris.
This museum is also known as the Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris, and is a museum dedicated to fashion and the history of costume and was officially opened in 1977 so that it could bring back to life the history of fashion and costume from the 18th century to today.
When you think about fashion, you think of Paris and for many people fashion has become a part of their city life, which is no doubt one of the reasons that this museum is such a success.
Palais de Tokyo
Site de Création Contemporaine, The Palais de Tokyo is next door to the Museum of Modern Art in the Trocadéro neighborhood of the 16 Arrondissement, and has become known as the most creative and fun. Created to showcase fashion, video, film, music and dance alongside the more traditional paintings and sculptures and with its spirit of risk-taking and experimentation, the Palais de Tokyo emphasizes on youth culture and even today it still continues to attract visitors of all ages.
