Shopping channel QVC has opened its first-ever French pop-up store.

Located in Paris, at 6 rue des Archives in the Marais, the store opened on 7 September and will remain open until 21 September, from 11.00am till 7.30pm.

The 180sqm space will offer beauty workshops and fashion advice, as well as relaxation areas with tea and a ‘digital shopping experience’.

QVC has also devised a jewellery offering and a beauty box in collaboration with local magazine Madame Figaro as exclusives during the store’s opening period.

Among the ateliers on offer are ‘Make Up’, which includes beauty advice from a make-up artist, along with a flash makeover.

A fragrance discovery session with British naturals brand Shay & Blue is also available; a nail bar, including an introduction to nail art and discovery of the Nailberry brand; a hair styling session focusing on plaits and braids; and a ‘Photocall’ session where the visitor gets to take away a fully staged and lit beauty portrait.
