French fashion house, Chanel, has joined forces with Palais Galliera, the City of Paris Fashion Museum to create a space that will showcase the history of fashion from the 18th Century to the present day. Featuring more than 200,000 garments, accessories and documents, the museum is France's first permanent fashion museum, and is set to open its doors in 2019.
"The House of Chanel is delighted to promote Paris (...) and in particular to support the Palais Galliera by making its exceptional collections accessible to all in new, permanent spaces (...) This initiative represents a lasting commitment to creation and to the strength of Paris, which are at the heart of Chanel’s business. Supporting an institution like the Palais Galliera is part of our mission to bring fashion history to life," says Bruno Pavlovsky, President of Chanel Fashion.
The new gallery will be named Salles Gabrielle Chanel, The Chanel Rooms, in gratification to the fashion house’s generous sponsor and support.
We know where we will be heading in 2019!
