To celebrate the opening of the Louis Vuitton Maison at Hotel Vancouver – one of only 12 in the world – guests were taken on a luxurious journey. After a celebratory champagne reception at the new store, a 1943 vintage steam engine transported guests to an ‘undisclosed location’ for the opening party.
The event was held in a classic railway transfer warehouse that featured a vintage Louis Vuitton store facade, with displays of Louis Vuitton luggage positioned throughout the space. A special performance by Argentine composer Gustavo Santaolalla accompanied an inspirational film by Louis Vuitton.
Co-hosted by Canadian-born model and Louis Vuitton muse Gabriel Aubry, the event’s 400 plus guests included the brand’s customers, local influencers and media.
