Paris is Getting a Museum Dedicated Entirely to Fashion from the 18th Century to Present!
Paris is getting a museum dedicated entirely to fashion from the 18th century to present and the French fashion label Chanel is making it possible.
Paris isn’t considered the fashion capital of the world in vain. Some of the most expensive and most famous designers come from Paris, such as Christian Louboutin and Coco Chanel.
Paris also hosts the finale of the four fashion weeks of the world, Milan Fashion Week, London Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week.
The term “haute couture” was invented in Paris, so yea. Now you understand why this city is the fashion capital so to say.
Those are just a few reasons why Paris deserves a museum, because the city is itself a fashion core, it screams fashion whenever you look.
The city is currently working on building France’s first permanent fashion museum and is taking a donation of $6 million, to make it happen.
According to the news, Paris is getting a partnership with Chanel to finance the new space inside the Palais Galliera.
Yes, the place is already considered by many the Fashion Museum of Paris, but it only displays temporary exhibits.
According to a press release, the new 7,211-square-foot area will feature a year-around exhibit dedicated to fashion’s history from the 18th century to present, plus a learning workshop and a bookstore.
“This initiative represents a lasting commitment to creation and to the strength of Paris, which are at the heart of Chanel’s business,” said Bruno Pavlovsky, president of Chanel Fashion, in a statement. “Supporting an institution like the Palais Galliera is part of our mission to bring fashion history to life.”
“The city of Paris is proud to be able to open this exceptional space to Parisians and visitors from all over the world,” said Anne Hidalgo, mayor of Paris, in a statement. “I would like to thank the House of Chanel for proving once again that Paris is the home of fashion.”
France’s government has been making efforts to try and bring more tourists in the country, especially in Paris since the 2016 militant attacks.
With the opening of a fashion museum, it will surely attract visitors from all over the world.
