The Fashionista’s Best Friend
The smart way to navigate the Parisian fashion shopping scene is with a Personal Shopper.

After an introductory conversation, the guide will take you through the store, showing you what’s available, advising on the options, and then putting a professional eye on the finished effect in a private fitting room.
