Chanel chooses Nexa for the Fashion Day 2016 in Venice
2016 - Venice
Corporate Event & Gala Event
2016 wasan important year for Chanel in Venice. From September 2016 to January 2017, Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia hostedthe exhibition "CULTURE CHANEL, the woman who reads" held at Ca' Pesaro - International Modern Art Gallery with the sponsorship of the great luxury brand.
Throughout the year of the exhibition, Chanel invited guests to Venice and Nexa was chosen to organize cultural visits and tours to discover the city. Inspired by the exhibition and Coco Chanel's iconic style, we "tailored" a series of tours aimed to convey a useful and original experience: visits to the classic Venetian sights but with a "twist”, walks in the lesser-known districts in search of hidden architectural gems, meetings with artisans in their workshops where art is still handcrafted, tours to the islands of the lagoon, tastings in local winebars and restaurants where, between tradition and starred cuisine, incomparably delectable dishes are created.
The gala dinner for Fashion Day 2016 at the Ancient Granaries of the Republic of the Belmond Hotel Cipriani was the highlight of our collaboration with Chanel. Nexa provided extensive customized consulting support for the organizational services, acting as the back office in the preparation of the event and as the reference point during the evening. We meticulously oversaw every requirement to ensure a service on a par with the great brand: from set-ups, to the choice of the menu, the music for the after dinner entertainment, logistics, and guest transfer management throughout their stay in the city.
The enchanted gala evening was made all the more glamorous by the fairytale setting; the ancient rough-hewn stone granaries of the Serenissima illuminated by majestic Murano glass chandeliers were the backdrop to the long Imperial tables where the candelabras and small candles of the essential design of the tablescapes gave a touch of magic to the refined dinner. After the dinner, the 170 guests took to the dance floor to the music of international Dj Julia Gautier, flown in directly from Paris to make the evening unforgettable.
Chanel and Nexa have thus established a relationship of mutual respect and and close cooperation that resulted in a year of events characterized by beauty and top-notch organization.
