The Galerie Vivienne was inaugurated in 1826 under the name Marchoux. The Galerie took advantage of its unique location. It attracted many visitors with its tailor shops, cobblers, wine shop, restaurant, Jusseaume bookstore, draper, confectioner, print-seller and so on. It has historically been in competition with the very close Galerie Colbert. Since 1960 the gallery has once again become very active and visited. It features fashion and home furnishings, and haute couture shows held there. The installation of Jean Paul Gaultier and Yuki Torii shops in 1986 helped with the resurrection of the gallery. It now houses many shops selling ready-to-wear and decorative items.
