8 days
Fashion-focused museum and school visits and the chance to meet a Parisian designer

Good design sensibilities come partly from within, but they are also a product of what we see.

Best to start with the aesthetic masterpieces at the Louvre, where an old dress in one of Diego Velázquez’s portraits may just inspire a creative revival of the ruffle. Even leisure time on the busy streets of Paris could spark an idea, driving pencil to paper as the sidewalk becomes your atelier.
