Time & Location

May 29, 2024, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM GMT+2

Paris, 51 R. de Turbigo, 75003 Paris, France


About the event

Join us for a day of guided shopping in the hidden, professional garment district of Paris. Learn about the fascinating history of the luxury fashion industry in France as we explore the rarified stock at these out-of-the way, hard-to-find specialists in gorgeous feathers, embroidery threads, passementerie and trims, sequins and beads, and fine tailoring supplies that will be perfect for your costume projects.  Many normally only accept wholesale clients and are hidden from view of retail customers, so this is your chance to shop for top-quality products at discount prices with a guide who can get you in the door. 

The outing will involve a lot of walking, a few flights of stairs, and we will take the Metro (which also has stairs and is not always disability-accessible), so be sure to wear sensible shoes. Unfortunately, this outing may not be feasible for those with mobility issues. 

Outing hours: 10am-5pm, starting with a coffee in the restaurant at the Café des Arts et Métiers, 75003 Paris 

The café is easy to find, it is right across the street from the Musée des Arts et Métiers, and located at the top of the stairs of the metro stop also called Arts et Métiers.

We will stop for a lunch break at mid-day at the Brasserie Dubillot.

Lunch is not included in the price of the outing (we will each pay for our own lunch).

Space is limited to 10 shoppers

This event is part of our annual Costume Camp series- two weeks of workshops, outings, parties, shopping, and other events for costumers in Paris, France.
