Written on the 20 April 2008 by Rachel Quilty of Jump the Q.
Hello! Style Magazines and France at Leisure have invited Di Cant to escort a group of fashion conscious travellers to Paris.
The fashion tour will be fully escorted with the advantage of having your own personal stylist, Di Cant with you to help make shopping decisions. Di will also introduce you to her favourite things to do while in Paris– some cheap and cheerful, some very exclusive and not always known about.
Jump the Q has decided to jump on board this fabuous trip, why don't you?
Let Di Cant show you Paris with the assistance of Parisian guides to streamline getting to and from venues. We will visit cafes, visit a magnificent museum of fashion, have an audience with a store stylist and a French designer, and be guests at a cooking exhibition where we’ll sample delicious French cuisine. We’ll dine in some little local bistros and restaurants, and do a couple of very special dinners as well.
So come along and bring your daughter, a friend, your husband or partner – or just come on your own! Just being there will be wonderful but doing it “with Style” and staying in 4-star hotel will make this a special memorable experience. You will love Paris this way, even if you have been before. This is about style, shopping, eating and just looking. Bring your camera as here will be a perfect group photo op one morning early at the flowers market. Let’s plan to go, girls! It’s going to be magic! Au revoir!
