Described on Louis Vuitton’s website as: “A modern and unexpected reinterpretation of a fashion show, this exhibition, following on from SERIES 1 and SERIES 2, invites visitors to discover Nicolas Ghesquière’s inspirations for his fourth ready-to-wear show as the Artistic Director for women’s collections at Louis Vuitton.”
I was completely blown away by the innovation and the thought that went behind Louis Vuitton Series 3. Every aspect of the design process was portrayed from the beginning roots of the Louis Vuitton design and creation process to modern day with all the technical advances that have been picked up along the way. Actual artisan from Vuitton were flown in to demonstrate the assembly process for Ghesquière’s and visitors were able to ask them questions, there was a virtual catwalk show and the ultimate Louis Vuitton wardrobe.
