The Galeries Lafayette invites you to explore
Why not start the adventure with a guided tour of the Galeries Lafayette? You can explore this architectural masterpiece outside of opening hours, learn its history, and get as close as possible to its magnificent glass dome. Documents, artifacts and period photos will immerse you in the story of more than a hundred years of Parisian shopping. You can also attend an exclusive 30-minute fashion show. The most prominent fashion players will share with you the current trends and those of tomorrow. Seated in the front row like a celebrity in a magazine, you can admire the fashions paraded by the models on the catwalk. Elegance and style await you!
Improve your culinary skills at the Galleries Lafayette
The Galeries Lafayette also invites you to get your hands messy with gourmet workshops. Learn how to make a great classic of French pâtisserie, for example, with the macarons workshop. Adults only or in a more fun-oriented family version, you can discover the secrets of the greatest chefs and learn to create this little marvel of flavour and mellowness. Finally, you can also take cooking classes organised by the famous Ferrandi Paris school. Under the direction of a chef, you’ll learn how to cook an emblematic dish of French gastronomy. Savoury or sweet, the choice is yours!
