The most sought after invitation for Cruise Collections every year is Chanel’s and this time this much anticipated fashion show will be taking place in Dubai. Of course Karl Lagerfeld will be there…
On May 13, the Cruise Collection, which comes between the two main seasonal collections for spring-summer and fall-winter, will be coming to Dubai alongside models and celebrities in tow.
“Since 2000, Chanel’s collections have been traveling around the world – from Paris to New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Venice, Saint Tropez, Cap d’Antibes, Versailles and Singapore,” it said in a statement. “A futuristic megalopolis of the 21st century, the ever-developing emirate of Dubai is a crossroads of civilizations between Europe and Asia.”
Bruno Pavlovsky, President of Chanel, said, “Chanel is very pleased to present its 2014-15 Cruise collection in Dubai. In addition to being a key hub for our Fashion business in the Middle East, Dubai was chosen because it inspires travel and evokes the true spirit of Cruise. The show that we will hold in this city on May 13th, in the presence of Karl Lagerfeld, will be a unique event that will feed the public’s imagination around our brand.”
Chanel’s decision reflects the growing momentum of Dubai’s design and fashion scene, and follows the June 2013 launch of Dubai Design District.
