    Dressed's Upcoming 2024 Fashion History Tour of Paris

    Dressed's Upcoming 2024 Fashion History Tour of Paris

    Today we tease our Fall 2024 fashion history tour of Paris and detail all of the sartorial delights on our itinerary for the City of Lights. From tours of the most important fashion museums in the world, to private visits to the ateliers of both historic and contemporary makers, this year's tour might just be our best yet! We will visit the Paris Opera and ballet costume workshops after hours on an exceptionally exclusive tour and will wander the 'closed to the public' spectacular home of one of the 19th centuries great (and most fashionable) courtesans, La Paiva. Tune in to see what's in store for you if you join us à Paris September 28-October 5 2024.
    More information and detailed itinerary are here. Space is limited and we expect this to sell out quickly. (Once the initial offering fills, we will start a waitlist to assess interest in a second weeklong offering.)

Delivery needs work

These podcasts have great content but the host regularly mispronounce commonly used words in English vernacular. It makes them sounds like they don’t know what they are talking about. Get a fact checker or just listen to how words are pronounced on Google.
