Sample itinerary for University and College groups (not included in the guide price)
The catwalks, collections and design houses of Paris are revered throughout the world and no university fashion and textile student is going to want to miss out on a tour of this fabulous capital city.
Just a stroll along the Avenue des Champs-Elysées will have your students salivating at the designer labels of Sephora, Vuitton and Guerlain. And, if you ever doubted the importance that Parisians apply to clothes and accessories then you'll quickly be advised to think again.
Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent and Coco Chanel have all plied their trade in Paris and this is an exceptional chance for fashion and textile students to visit the very streets that were once the inspiration for these legendary style icons.
For a more in-depth explanation as to just how Paris and fashion are so evenly matched a guided tour of the boutiques and design studios will no doubt provide plenty of practical advice when it comes to pursuing a career in the industry. Meeting a designer hard at work is often one of the highlights of any student tour to Paris and being offered a peek into the day-to-day techniques and processes provides a really worthwhile first-hand experience.
If you're looking for further inspiration the Musée de la mode et du textile, which is housed in the Louvre, has an exceptional collection presenting a history of fashion from French Regency to modern day. All of the top designers and textile artists are represented with some superb examples of embroidery, silks, cotton prints and lace work as well as furniture, ceramics and interior designs.
Of course, if you really want to take your university fashion and textile tour to a new level then head to Paris during February or September where you'll be treated to an exhibition of fabric and textiles like no other – Première Vision. This is where the fashion world unites under one roof and BA students can gain special access to what always promises to be a breathtaking bi-annual event.
