Hence and nowadays fashion through Le Marais


Did you know that « marais » means « swamp » in French ?
Hardly a very glamourous beginning for a neighborhood now know as the epicenter of Parisian fashion !

Walk the Marais with me and learn how it took its shape, from the magnificence of the aristocrats' masquerades to the clothing manufacturers of the 20th century.

Let me introduce you to the past and present stories of fashion boutiques and brands. Learn about the concept of « couture pastries, » or immerse yourself in the history of French perfume.

Discover the most stylish boutiques of the moment and learn why they are so successful.

After this tour, you'll be fluent in fashion ^^

Aloïs took us all over the Marais to all kinds of shops: clothing, tea, chocolate, antiques, home goods. It was fun seeing and learning about the area. We also learned the history of some of the shops.
