The art of being a lady

Girls in aristocratic circles have long attended a finishing school to polish their manners, their deportment and their accents.

Wealthy families in the United Kingdom have traditionally sent their young society ladies to finishing schools in Switzerland to learn the intricacies of correct upper class behaviour.

Diana, Princess of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall both attended finishing schools in Switzerland – but it is not a solely British preserve. 

Indeed, young ladies from distinguished families across the world are eager to emulate the manners of the aristocracy and Luxury Academy London are experts in etiquette and protocol. 

The five-day Finishing school is an exceptional foundation for young ladies to take their first step into society.
