Chanel is celebrating its 11th Métiers d’Art show this year, an event honoring the fine craftsmanship its artisan partners bring to the Chanel collections. With an annual runway show that takes place outside the traditional fashion schedule, each year, Chanel turns to a different location to pay tribute to the workshops that provide the house with everything from lace to silver buttons and fine embroidery work.
After Byzance, Bombay, Edinburgh and Dallas, Chanel headed to Salzburg for the 11th show at the Rococo palace Schloss Leopoldskron in Dec. 2014. The global luxury brand brought the Métiers d’Art show to Manhattan in early April 2015, for a show at the Park Avenue Armory.
