Italian designer Valentino Garavani has shaped haute couture fashion for five decades.
Fashionistas invited aboard Air Chanel
The elaborate setting for this year's Chanel Haute Couture show saw the Grand Palais in Paris transformed into a private jet - complete with numbered seats, strip lighting, emergency exits and of course, a bar.
Chanel's creative director Karl Lagerfeld has built an unrivaled reputation for hosting lavish shows. Last year, he featured an under-the-sea theme starring Florence Welch and also a dinner party that could have been thrown by Marie Antoinette at the metier d'art celebration.
But to date, this is perhaps his most original production. Take a look through our gallery to see what the plane looked like and to see some of the spring/summer collection.
