As a consequence, he arrived in France, where he began to study architecture and began working with an accessories designer, which would represent the beginning of his successful career.
His designs were always characterized by being different from the rest, since materials never seen before in haute couture were used, such as plastic and other materials such as metal.

Some of Paco’s best-selling fragrances so far are the famous One Million, with an approximate cost of $2,500.00 MXN or Paco Rabanne pour Homme, which can be obtained for $1,800.00 MXN.
