Chanel has truly come up with just a few of the most spectacular show settings each fashion season. From a backdrop of a flowing waterfall, to a nine metre iceberg imported from Scandinavia to Paris, and now a luxury liner inside the Grand Palais for the latest cruise 2018/9 collection, Karl Lagerfeld is no stranger to creating cinematic wonderlands.

And this season, Chanel opened its exclusive doors to 500 students at the Grand Palais, 2 days after the 2019 Cruise collection was open to media. The fashion seminar included a masterclass with the President of Fashion at Chanel, Bruno Pavlovsky, which was hosted by French Journalist Elisabeth Quin, and dealt with the themes of creation, the creative dialogue between Karl Lagerfeld, his studio, the CHANEL ateliers and the artisans at the Maisons d’art, and finally, his visions of creativity and product creation.

“This first experiment is part of Chanel’s desire to hand its values and its passion down to the talented young people of fashion’s future, in the creative domain as much as management, finance, marketing, business, digital and new technologies,” Pavlovsky said in a statement.

As one of the most sought after employer by students (Universum rating), this is the latest in Chanel’s venture towards their commitment to schools. Previously, in dedication to developing future talents, the French house held presentations in schools, started collaborative projects, and provided students with internship opportunities. The House has partnered with schools such as Central Saint Martins, ENSAAMA (École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d’Art), and  ESSEC Business School since 2015.
