Author(s): MAGNIANT REBECCA
Not until Rebecca Magniant moved to Paris did she discover the concept of "les bonnes addresses," the personal list of favorite shops meticulously compiled and jealously guarded by every stylish Frenchwoman. When Magniant assembled her own, and some of her finds impressed the impossibly chic belle mere (mother-in-law), she knew she was on to something. She went on to found the premier Parisian shopping service and now, in Chic Shopping Paris, shares the creme de la creme-those places that every discerning shopper should know-including many boutiques that offer goods or services only available in Paris. She's also included websites to give a sneak peek and to help you plan an itinerary.
In 2003, American-in-Paris Rebecca Magniant founded Chic Shopping Paris (www.chicshoppingparis.com), a service that offers personal tours of the city's best shops, conducted by bilingual guides. She has written for The Guardian and France Today and has appeared on the Travel Channel, ESPN, and Rai Uno. Alison Harris has worked throughout the world shooting photos for travel books, cookbooks, advertising campaigns, book covers, and magazine stories. Her latest books, Markets of Paris, The Patisseries of Paris, Chic Shopping Paris, and Food Wine The Italian Riviera & Genoa are published by The Little Bookroom.
