The concept of Nicolas Ghesquière’s Louis Vuitton Women’s Fall/Winter 2019 Fashion Show alludes to the idea of being a “museum within a museum”.

Designed by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers and inaugurated in 1977, the multicultural venue rapidly became one of the most recognisable and popular modern monuments despite the considerable controversy surrounding it.
