In the late 19th century, the first Galeries Lafayette department store was opened. Back then, it had a different name and operated on a much smaller scale. It was the birth of a luxury chain that even today continues to amaze the fashion world. Rue La Fayette No.1, Paris, remains the address of the home of luxury.

The company expanded rapidly, quickly gaining a foothold in Paris as well as other French cities. Currently, there are 64 branches of the Galeries Lafayette, including 59 in France and others in Berlin, Dubai, Jakarta, Beijing and Casablanca.

Here, the customer is treated like a king, even as the charm of fashion overwhelms her.
