Our CHANEL Cruise Cuba Collection 2016/17 Trip!

We got invited on a trip of a lifetime to see the CHANEL Cruise Cuba 2016/17 Collection on the streets of Havana Paseo Del Prado! Cuba is changing dramatically and it was such a special time to be there, because CHANEL is the first international fashion house to have a show there! It was so exciting because it was also Karl Lagerfeld's first time in Cuba! (We got to see the first U.S cruise ship in forty years docked there and Fast and the Furious 8 is the first American movie that has started filming!)
On our first night, we went to a CHANEL dinner at Atelier that CHANEL hosted for all the press that attended. We ate delicious pesto pasta, Coco Flan and had yummy drinks in fresh coconuts while we chatted with friends. Later that night we went to Tropicana to see an incredible Cabaret show filled with flamingo dressed dancers, chandelier headpieces and neon outfits. Everyone was shaking their tail feather while sipping on champagne. We stayed at Hotel Nacional de Cuba and went on a shopping tour the next day to see local artists at a Flea Market. We bought some hand made pop can hats, tie dye dresses and purses. The walking tour we went on was amazing because we saw such beautiful architecture and soaked up the culture since it was our first time in Cuba.
We then all went back to our hotel, jumped in the pool and got ready for the big night!
Before the fashion show started, we all got picked up in vintage rainbow convertible cars that brought us to Havana Paseo del Prado. There were 170 cars that brought all 600 guests to the show. It was so much fun being in the car with the buildup of the amazing energy and excitement before the show started. Locals were on their balconies behind us and in front of us cheering on the models and waving at us. We met Vin Diesel who was such a sweetheart and we took a fun selfie with him. We were all sitting on park benches and the models walked down a runway that was 160 metres long. CHANEL made history and turned Havana's street into a gorgeous runway show, showing lots of colorful tweeds, neon sequin dresses and Viva Coco Libre tees. There were also military jackets, lots of Panama hats and brogues. There were 86 looks total and some menswear looks that had the male models smoking Cuban cigars. CHANEL embraced Cuba's culture playing live Afro Cuban music during the show and even had Cuban Cigar purse boxes and vintage car prints on skirts and bathrobes.
At the end of the show, the models Cha- Chaed down the runway and danced their way back with drummers and dancers and singers! It ended with a Congo line, a Cuban carnival tradition and they all followed behind Karl who was holding his godson's Hudson Kroenig's hand. It was EPIC! All of the guests rushed on to the runway to dance and be a part of the celebration. We ended up right behind Karl and Hudson capturing it, in one of our videos on Instagram. After the show, guests jumped back into the vintage cars and headed to La Plaza de la Catedral for the after party. Dancers and live singers filled the party with Cuban beats and dance moves. We danced all night until our feet hurt! One of our favourite moments was when Karl hit the dance floor. It was everything! We didn't want the night to end. It will be forever be one of our most unforgettable and special trips! Cha Cha Cha!
