Chronicles of LaFleur: Vintage Fling in Paris

26 May

Summer 2009, while studying abroad, I had a private visit of the Louis Vuitton Museum, with an adjoining workshop where bags and trunks are still being made. In 1854, Louis Vuitton, the young trunk-maker founded the company Louis Vuitton in Paris after he enjoyed the ultimate honor of becoming Empress Eugenie’s favorite specialist.

This was a fabulous experience!
