Diane knows a lot about fashion and Paris as the center of fashion. I really enjoyed this tour. I learned a lot, and I saw a very nice Paris thanks to Diane.

It is a fun way to learn about Paris, and its rich history in the past two centuries. And absolute recommendations if you just would like to wander around the streets, and visit places of fashion significance.
