Join your guide Pat from Women of Paris, for this experience where you'll be taken on a 2 hour walk into the most iconic neighborhoods of Paris, followed by drinks and a screening of "Bernadette" with English subtitles.
Paris is synonymous with fashion, style and elegance and so too are the city’s women. Since the dawn of the 20th century the world has looked to Paris to dictate style trends thanks to household names like Chanel, Dior and Yves Saint Laurent. Whilst she often pops up first in any list of important Parisian designers, Chanel was by no means the only influential woman in the Paris fashion scene however. This unique tour recounts the stories of five different female designers, as well as spotlighting a number of up and coming créatrices from the African diaspora to keep an eye on. Schiaparelli, Lanvin, Reboux, Paquin and Chanel all shared these things: daring, creativity and a sense of what the modern woman needed. But as the stories unfold, we learn how everything from their backgrounds to their values differed enormously. Your friendly and knowledgable tour guide Pat will lead you through the so-called “triangle d’or” (golden triangle) of Parisian Haute Couture and you’ll come away inspired by these women who continue to shape and colour our lives today.
After this walk, if you would like to attend Lost in Frenchlation screening of "Bernadette", you will arrive at Le Balzac cinema at 7:30pm. ☞ You can purchase tickets directly here : https://www.cinemabalzac.com/film/557290/
Please not that the tickets for the movie ARE NOT INCLUDED in the tickets for the tour, and must be purchased separately.
Looking forward to meeting you there!
Women of Paris The first Paris walking tour devoted entirely to women's history and influence.
Lost in Frenchlation's mission is simple – we want to bring world-renown French cinema to the international community in Paris by showing French films with English subtitles, and we want to be a hub for the international community to get to know each other as well as native Parisians.
