The mayor also announced that Paris will be investing 57 million euros in the sector from now through 2020.

"Because fashion is also all those trades that are in inseparable from artistic creation. I myself was raised by a seamstress and very quickly learned the precious value of artisanal work. Embroiderers, trim-makers, designers, jewellers and jewellery-makers, leather craftsmen, shoemakers, parfumers...numerous are these artisanal trades that other capitals envy us for. We decided to reaffirm our full support for this vital industry by investing 57 million euros in the fashion sector over the next 6 years. By mobilizing this considerable sum, we will give ourselves the means to consolidate our position as the global capital of fashion."
