French fashions have long been associated with glamour and allure. Iconic brands such as Chanel, Christian Dior, Hermès, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Louis Vuitton and Yves Saint Laurent are all at the forefront of fashion.
The expression “haute couture” in France is a legally protected name, guaranteeing certain quality standards and refers to the creation of exclusive custom-fitted clothing. Our top couture designers include Chanel, Anne Valérie Hash and Christian Lacroix.
Heading to Paris? Many of France’s most acclaimed fashion houses have stores on the Avenue Montaigne, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore, Champs-Elysees Avenue, rue des Rosiers in Le Maraisand, and the Saint-Germain des Pres district.
