Chanel uses fashion to make a statement

Chanel is undeniably one of the hot-ticket events of Paris couture week and the lucky guests invited to Karl Lagerfeld's show were treated to a real spectacle. The luxury French fashion house packed the runway with real pines and towering oaks. The spring/summer collection was dramatic and ornate with a color palette consisting mainly of white, grey and black. However, for the wedding gown finale, a standard custom at haute couture shows, Lagerfeld made an even more striking statement -- with two brides strutting down the runway hand in hand. After the show the designer explained the message. SOUNDBITE: Karl Lagerfeld, designer, saying (French): "It's something that I find natural and I find quite nice should two women marry. In my opinion, two mothers are better than two fathers." The designer's godson accompanied the two Chanel brides, who said despite the boy's young age, he is already a veteran. SOUNDBITE: Karl Lagerfeld, designer, saying (French): "He's used to it. He has already done photo campaigns, and on top of that, he's already walked the show with the French garden, the amethysts thing here [in the Grand Palais], no, no he's used to it, he did the Scotland show as well... no, no he's used to it. And he's really funny... he's frequently solicited, but he tells them, 'I only work with Karl.'" Paris Haute Couture Week runs through January 24th.
