Grand Havana colonial avenue has been transformed into a private runway for French fashion house Chanel.
Chanel gets its French touch to Cuba for a special event: its first Latin American show in Havana. Last Thuesday, the French fashion house presented the 2016 Resort collection on an open-air catwalk on the Paseo del Prado, a popular promenade near the city’s waterfront, on front of a wide public of celebrities. The new collection was a celebration of Cuban culture. In announcing the show, Chanel said that "the cultural richness and the opening up of Cuba to the world have turned it into a source of inspiration." In the meanwhile, Raul Castillo, Cuba's best-known living designer said: "When we become a normal country, without the embargo, we will be leaders of fashion.”
