About Diane Marz

I'm Diane Marz, the founder and fashionista behind Petite in Paris.

If you are looking to contact me, head over to my contact page!

I'm so happy you found me! Originally from Leawood, Kansas, I now reside in New York City, USA with my husband.

However, before settling down in the big apple, my husband and I lived in Paris, France for 7 years from 2014 – 2021. During this time I attended fashion week, exclusive events, photoshoots and connected with top brands. Many of which I'm still working with today!

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Finance and Marketing with a focus in Luxury Fashion from the University of Kansas. I gained hands-on experience at top luxury international fashion houses such as Chanel, Hermès, and Louis Vuitton.

I absolutely LOVE fashion, luxury handbags, and jewelry. The more rare a piece, the better! My love for fashion started at an early age, when I used to play dress up in my Mom’s closet, trying on her Chanel suits, pearl necklace, and walking around in her Louboutin heels. Decades later, my happy place is still playing dress up, learning about luxury handbags, reading about new fashion trends, and of course borrowing my Mom's vintage clothing.

What you’ll find on Petite in Paris

During my time in Paris, I worked with hundreds of brands including: Christian Louboutin, Celine, Chanel, Dior, Ralph Lauren, Google, and many, many more!

And while I may live in New York today, I have a lifetime of contacts in Paris to help me keep up with trends, emerging talent, and fashion events.

On my website Petite in Paris I take everything I've learned over the past 10 years and share a combination of fashion trends, handbag trends, jewelry trends and even travel tips.

Since as early as 2014 I started blogging and sharing everything I learned with millions of readers from around the world.

I also routinely update my fashion articles with the most relevant information. And I'm always eager to answer reader questions, so feel free to ask me anything.
