Louis Vuitton’s Volez, Voguez, Voyagez Exhibition

By Amber Monaé

Last Friday I decided to venture off to the popular LV exhibit to see what they have to offer and believe me they did not disappoint. It is only right the exhibit takes place in New York being it is the Fashion Capital (some may argue that) so us New Yorkers for sure can appreciate the latest fashion exhibit in town.  Located at the American Stock Exchange, the layout of the exhibit is breathtaking. Every room has a different story that is well executed. The historic journey of the luxe brand, designed by Robert Carsen, is divided into ten chapters, one of which is entirely devoted to the United States of America and New York City (duh). The tour opens with the most symbolic object of the House: the trunk, a model fashioned with contemporary flair, embodying the iconic hallmarks and bold spirit of Louis Vuitton. The exhibition features objects and documents from the Louis Vuitton heritage archives. (more…)

With a new location and an earlier date I knew this was going to be a different kind of night.  The gala is a scholarship and awards ceremony mixed with some dancing and networking. Just by the invitation (Glimpse The Future) I knew there was a lot to be in store by the honorees alone. Take a look. (more…)
