After long months of waiting and an uncertain recovery in June, the events calendar is finally filling up: Fashion Week, congresses, exhibitions, diplomatic and sporting events… the Chabé teams are back in the field to contribute to the success of the extraordinary events organized by our clients.
The recovery began with Men’s Fashion Week in June 2021, although only 5 of the 72 Luxury Houses presented their Spring/Summer 2022 collections in a physical show. *
Despite the lack of face-to-face events, Chabé accompanied its clients with a fleet of more than 150 chauffeur-driven vehicles.
At the same time, the Group took part in the successful organization of the Generation Equality Forum with over 50 vehicles and chauffeurs for airport transfers and event transportation.
At the end of the summer, in the Sarthe department, Chabé provided transport for the VIPs of a major Swiss luxury company during the 24 hours of Le Mans race.
At the beginning of September, Chabé was at two events, in Marseille and in Paris.
From 3 to 11 September, at the Palais des Congrès de Marseille Chanot, the first major event dedicated to the environment since the beginning of the pandemic was held in a hybrid format. Chabé provided transport in 100% electric vehicles with a team of chauffeurs, 60% of whom were women.
Then from September 9 to 12, the Grand Palais Ephémère hosted the first modern and contemporary art fair, the Art Paris Art Fair. As an official partner, we provided transport for the organizers and VIPs throughout the event.
The end of September saw the start of the medical congresses at the Palais des Congrès in Paris with several transfers to and from airports and train stations.
The long-awaited recovery is now confirmed with the ready-to-wear Fashion Week.
After the New York, London and Milan Fashion Weeks, the show is now back in Paris, with around 30 in-person shows. The women’s ready-to-wear week, which runs from 27 September to 5 October, “looks good“, Pascal Morand, Executive President of the Federation of Haute Couture and Fashion, told AFP. “All the big houses are there with a few exceptions, there are new brands, we can sense an appetite for the physical, for the show“, after months of health crisis and lockdown. **
To date, 97 fashion houses are returning to the catwalk for their new spring/summer 2022 collections.
From the Opéra Garnier to the Tuileries, from the Grand Palais Ephémère to the Carrousel du Louvre, Chabé deployed 250 cars with chauffeurs over the week to transport VIPs, journalists and employees of the leading luxury houses.
