Chanel Resort collection to be staged in Dubai

Chanel to hold its first resort show in Dubai in May, 2014.

Chanel Resort collection, one of the fashion world’s most anticipated and extravagant shows, will take place in Dubai on May 13.  Although the details, as usual, are kept secret, the event in-between the main fashion week seasons is expected to be a grand show packed with impressive details and opulence.

The previous Chanel Resort collections were presented in Paris, Venice, Los Angeles, Singapore, and on the French Riviera.

“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” explained Bruno Pavlovsky, President of Chanel Fashion.

“Dubai will stand alongside Chanel’s other great collection destinations, such as Paris, Venice, Saint-Tropez, Cap d’Antibes and Singapore,” addded Dr Al Rustamani, CEO of TECOM Investments, the developer behind the Dubai Design District.
