Chanel presented Karl Lagerfeld’s cruise collection in Toronto, with a fashion show that replicated an event held in Miami at the Raleigh hotel being where Chanel’s cruise collection was shown last June.

A runway-length pool of blue, was erected in the middle of the dining hall, along with towering lifeguard chairs, and topped with a curvilinear black path just like the one in Miami, while blue ripples floated across giant projection screens on the walls

Having flown in its 2008-2009 Cruise collection along with a team international models, the show marked the designer’s first major Canadian runway show in 10 years. The event was hosted by Jeanne Becker of Fashion Television and sponsored by CTV, to benefit the SickKids Foundation.
