30th November 2023 – (Hong Kong) Avenue of Stars has been closed to the public since Wednesday night, as preparations are underway for the highly anticipated runway show by luxury fashion brand Louis Vuitton. Set to take place this evening at 8pm, the glitzy event is expected to enhance the city’s reputation as an international style capital.
The show will feature the debut of Louis Vuitton’s first pre-fall collection under the creative direction of superstar singer and producer Pharrell Williams, who joined the brand in February. However, leaked footage on social media has unveiled a surprising twist in the runway design. Male models were seen rehearsing on a specially constructed waterfront runway adorned with LED panels that simulated flowing blue water. Surrounding the LED screens are beige ottomans where guests will be seated. The catwalk area, contrary to earlier expectations, appears to be smaller and less grandiose.
