As if we needed another reason to visit the fashion capital!
With a history steeped in such a rich abundance of fashion and style, it still surprises us to this day that Paris is yet to have a permanent residence that brings it all together in one location.
From Louis XIV’s courts which were the arbiters of style with countries across Europe following their every outfit change to Marie Antoinette and her lavish reputation, there are many fashion houses and revolutionary designers who call the city home.
Some of them include Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Celine, Hermes and Yves Saint Laurent.
Channel is set to partner with the city of love to construct a brand new space in the famed Palais Galliera to build an eye-popping fashion museum, worth about Dhs 20 million (5.7 Million Euro) as reported by WWD.
The museum, which currently only displays temporary exhibits, will house a 7,211-square-foot space that will showcase the region’s history from the 18th century all the way up to today.
Also, most importantly, there will be a bookstore (and gift shop we hope), as well as a learning workshop to boot.
This initiative represents a lasting commitment to creation and to the strength of Paris, which is the heart of Chanel’s business,” said Bruno Pavlovsky, president of Chanel Fashion.
“Supporting an institution like the Palais Galliera is part of our mission to bring fashion history to life.”
