Work the Way You Want.
If you plan to work while on your Sojrn, you’ll have the opportunity to do so from afar while immersing yourself in the local culture. With a complimentary high-speed WiFi hotspot, your desk can be anywhere you like, from your own apartment to the cute coffee shop around the corner. Sojrn has also partnered with a cafe to create a Sojrn Space, so you’ll always have somewhere nearby to get work done or meet up with Chaptermates whenever you like. Think of it as your friendly neighborhood hangout.
We’ve found that this setup is ideal for the majority of people who join Sojrn. However, if you have more specific work needs, we also provide a co-working space nearby that’s open from 9 am to 6 pm local time. Just be sure to choose this as an optional add-on when you book.

History & Culture
As you settle into your new home this week, start to uncover the history of Parisian fashion. From Chanel to YSL, you'll learn about the key players of the past century, the art they created, and the historical context that informed their most famous designs. Begin the process of finding your own inspiration, whether from the contemporary streetwear taking over the local Parisian scene or the haute couture pieces making statements on the runway. Embrace the powerful culture of expression through Parisian fashion and art.
Every fashion house has its codes, from the colors to the vibrations, the prints, the patterns, the shapes, the stories, or any number of specific visual elements that are a brand's lifeblood. And when dressing ourselves, so do we. Our house codes start with our aesthetic, and there's no better visual representation than a personalized mood board.
This week, you'll venture into Paris, build out your mood board, and learn about the art of dressing with a workshop on fit, form, mixing, and matching. There will be a particular focus on combining patterns, textures, and shapes in ways that complement instead of clash at the Fab Lab.
To the public eye, fashion is pretty forward-facing. However, what we see, whether it's a fashion show, photograph, or even an accessory, is the culmination of a creative process that begins with ideation and design. Rarely do we get to observe the magic that happens behind the scenes.
This week we'll meet the experts behind the curtain in the fashion world and learn about what it takes to be successful in the industry.
The sustainable fashion movement might as well have its roots in Parisian couture; after all, these pieces were designed to last a lifetime. At the forefront of discussion in the fashion industry, sustainable fashion focuses on local sourcing and production, transparency across the supply chain, ecological integrity, and more.
Learn about the multi-layered dynamics of the movement, how it is changing the fashion industry's future, and what you can do to be a part of it. In the last week of this chapter, we'll consider lessons from the past as we explore the future of fashion for a more sustainable world.
