Chanel Show Lands In Miami Executive Airport

Chanel 2007 Cruise Resort Collection Models

The legendary House of Chanel presented the premiere showing of the Chanel 2008 Resort and Cruise Collection in a private airplane hangar at the Miami Executive Airport. The show was presented by Saks Fifth Avenue Dadeland to benefit the Golden Angels, a recognition society of the Jackson Memorial Foundation. This show echoed the spectacular world premiere at the Santa Monica Airport, where a hangar was transformed into a glamorous airport lounge. When guests first entered the area, they received boarding passes welcoming them to Golden Angel Class on the Chanel Line.
First, guests mingled with each other and enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres and drinks, during the cocktail hour. After the cocktail hour, guests were asked to take their seats for the formal sit-down dinner and the showing of the fashion collection. An announcement was made that the Chanel plane had landed. And then–voila–the doors of the hangar opened; the private jet pulled up under a glorious full moon, and the models outfitted in the collection de-planed onto the runway. It was an amazing moment in the history of fashion shows—in fact it was a happening more than a show– and delighted and amazed the guests. Adding to the excitement was a slew of paparazzi who couldn’t take enough pictures of the fashions and the VIPs who attended the event.
