Event Recap: CHANEL Little Black Jacket Exhibition Opening

By Amanda Rushforth

On April 25th in Dubai, CHANEL celebrated the opening of the exhibition The Little Black Jacket, a celebration of the modernity and timelessness of the CHANEL jacket. Presented steps away from the towering Burj Khalifa at The Venue, Downtown Dubai, a unique space was specially constructed to showcase over 100 photographs of celebrities and other personalities wearing the iconic piece, selected from the book “The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld”.

Following on from exhibitions throughout the world in 2012, this special event in Dubai joins Milan in being the first cities in 2013 in which Karl Lagerfeld’s new photographs of celebrities wearing the iconic CHANEL jacket are unveiled, including Rita Ora, Alma Jodorowsky and Caroline de Maigret who were in attendance in Dubai to see their new photographs first hand.

The exhibition will be open to the public from Saturday April 27th until Saturday May 11th and admission is free.
