Cable International Fine Art and Kwila Lodge have announced today that rare pieces from Coco Chanel’s private collection of Chanel haute couture and artworks will be on display for two exclusive events this November.
The unique collection has been previously exhibited in London, Milan, Paris and across the US and has recently been expanded to include never-seen-before portraits of Coco Chanel. A selection of Chanel haute couture including garments and jewellery, all drawn from Coco’s private wardrobe, will be modelled one final time by the Hembrow sisters on the 18 November at the COCO CHANEL: l’art de vivre exclusive event.
COCO CHANEL: l’art de vivre is the first of the special events which will feature the very best of French fine dining by Daniel Ridgeway, vintage Chanel haute couture and world-class artworks painted in the CHANEL atelier and the finest entertainment. Internationally acclaimed, multi-award-winning violinist, Yena Choi will perform at the exclusive evening and Queensland Ballet will perform a pas de deux, choregraphed especially for the evening by Artistic Director, Li Cunxin AO.
“This is an extremely rare opportunity to see this impeccable museum-quality exhibition, the first chance for the public to see this collection and the last.” said Mrs Karen Nash, Curator of the collection, Cable International Fine Art.
“We are so pleased to be able to feature such a stunning and rare array of vintage Chanel couture and artworks in the stunning surrounds of Kwila Lodge. Our recently opened weddings and corporate events location is the perfect location to host these two unique and special events.” said Amanda Appel, Co-owner, Kwila Lodge.
Whilst guests dine on delicious French cuisine by award-winning chef, Daniel Ridgeway, they will be treated to a 1968 inspired runway, featuring the Hembrow sisters, showcasing the clothing and jewellery drawn from Coco’s private wardrobe.
The events at Kwila Lodge represent the only opportunity for the Australian public to view this collection.
