France is deemed the world's most popular tourist attraction and is oft referred to as all things to all people. Beside its great cities of Paris, Lyon and Marseille there are the famous attractions of the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, and the Arc de Triomphe. France's culinary traditions are legendary. The countryside delivers great alpine peaks, jagged sea cliffs and breathtaking beaches. The term 'haute couture' is truly French, is protected by French law, and defined by the Chambre de commerce et d’industrie de Paris. Haute couture equates to "high sewing" or "high dressmaking" and refers to the creation of exclusive custom-fitted fashions. The custom and history of French sewing and sewing techniques are themselves legendary.
