Pretty Women of Paris

Pretty Women of Paris……

For the next 23 weeks, La Fée will be letting you peep through the keyhole into scandalous 19th Century Parisian nightlife.  We will be showing the courtesans featured in Kate Rochester’s book “The Pretty Women of Paris” with original text from 1883 and beautiful illustrations by Lindsay Brunnock.

La Fée was delighted to sponsor the book’s launch last year due to the historical links between Absinthe, Paris and ladies of the night.

The first lady on our website is Marguerite Debreux, described as a “succulent darling” with “one of the handsomest bums in Paris”.
