Head to the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation in central Paris, just north of the Eiffel Tower, for your morning tour of the designer's studio.

Your guide will welcome you and give you some history on the Yves Saint Laurent studio. In 1974, the French fashion mogul moved from his former building on Rue Spontini into a mansion on Avenue Marceau, where he and his partner Pierre Bergé worked to create some of the most renowned collections in fashion history. Yves Saint Laurent is perhaps most famous for his creation of the tuxedo suit for women.

Now called the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation, this temple of 20th-century haute couture is now a curated exhibition space where visitors can witness the development of the fashions created by the great French designer and his team over the course of nearly three decades.

Start on the first-floor lounge to see where clients would come to view and buy the clothes for their fashion shows. You’ll notice monographs of artists Picasso, Van Gogh and Matisse, who inspired Yves Saint Laurent's designs. At the end of the room, you’ll see a reconstruction of his desk topped with Christian Dior's walking stick, which was given to Yves Saint Laurent at the beginning of his career.

Your guide will take you through the luxurious salons of the studio to see where the fashion collections were born. Hear anecdotes about Yves Saint Laurent’s life and successes as you discover several original, annotated sketches and emblematic haute couture prototypes.

This experience will give you a rare glimpse into the bold creativity that this fashion house was known for. You also have access to any temporary exhibitions currently running, which you can visit after your guided tour.
