Chanel has decided not to go ahead with a fashion show due to take place on November 6 in Hong Kong, citing the ongoing protests as cause, according to a report published by WWD.
The French fashion house did not reschedule the event designed to launch its cruise 2019 collection, merely that it would take place ‘at a more appropriate moment’. The collection will go on sale across the brand’s nine boutiques as planned.
“It depends on the situation,” Bruno Pavlovsky, President of Fashion and President of Chanel SAS told WWD. “Hong Kong is a key market. We have a very strong Hong Kongese customer base,” he added.
