What you'll do
Welcome to le Marais, Paris' Fashion District. Where history + fashion intersect and Paris goes out to shop...then out to play. Meet us at our Made in France Concept Store on trendy Rue Francois Miron where we will enjoy a vaunted French tradition--the apero. A glass of wine or coffee + little snack while we get to know each other. Parisians aren't efficient, we enjoy life, then we work! (But when we do, the world takes notice!) First we get to know each other, our fellow travelers, and we will help you find your parisian style over laughs and a, 'cheers'... Time to get to work! Select your fabric while we sketch out your unique design. We show you how to make it (mostly) yourself, with our expert guidance. Then, the embellishments--the finishing touches from our 'bar des accoutrements'...feathers, beads, crystals, patches, pins, who knows what Paris will inspire you to design! A fun, lighthearted 'atelier'--our attitude is convivial/welcoming, no fashion victims /snobs here! Anna and Mickael may have worked for some of the most chic fashion houses + Valkyrie may write a guide to the 'must-do' of Paris, but that doesn't mean they are les meanies. Non. The new Paris is still chic AF but it also has wide-open attitude...a warm, sharing spirit. Take home your piece of today's Paris...it's a different place than before. Et voilà! Your own beret, Made in Paris ;) Cheers!

I'm Valkyrie and I'm the author of the upcoming 2020 guide--PARIS IS BURNING. I uncover every corner of Paris in search of the most interesting things happening. My Made-in-France shop opens this winter in the le Marais fashion district. My friends Anna and Mickael are indy fashion designers specializing in accessories and pret-a-porter--they have worked for Yves Saint-Laurent, John Galliano, Gaultier, Balmain among others. Mickael's passion is eco-friendly fashion. We are in-the-know-on the right bank and are excited to share fashion designer techniques for making your very own parisian beret. But first, an apero, parisian-style, a wine tasting or coffee and snack to get to know each other and discuss finding your personal, parisian style.
