At 110 years old, Chanel is finally adapting to the times.
The Maison has announced that it will be streaming its upcoming Fall/Winter 2020 show live from Paris Fashion Week. This marks a first for the French fashion brand, whose runway shows used to be an experience reserved solely for the fashion press and VIPs.
Now, Chanel is opening up its front row to all of its fans, who will get to see the latest ready-to-wear collection by Karl Lagerfeld’s successor, Virginie Viard, the moment it hits the runway. Expect a grand setting; most recently, the brand’s Spring 2020 haute couture show was held at the Grand Palais in Paris, which was remade into a romantic garden.
