Métiers d’Art in Dakar

This autumn, artistic director Virginie Viard set up the Chanel Métiers d’Art show in Dakar, Senegal, a project that was three years in the making. Working closely with local talents, from designers to film makers, Chanel launched a series of four documentaries made by a team from the Kourtrajmé Cinema School, a talent pool which has the backing of directors such as Ladj Ly.

Though many V.I.P. guests were French and Senegalese, celebrities from other countries also attended, among them Naomi Campbell, Pharrell Williams and actress, model and Chanel House Ambassador Komatsu Nana, who had arrived in Senegal on December 7, on the eve of the show.
