The Metiers d'Art show, which launched in 2003 as a homage to the label's workshop, saw the Grand Palais in Paris transformed into an Indian-themed dinner party on December 6th. The ultimate dinner party... in history, I might add, was a show for the Chanel pre-fall 2012 collection. Royalty, I mean the guests, sat at luxurious banquet tables, which doubled as a runway, complete with chandeliers, opulent candle-sticks - and a feast fit for a king.
