You may have missed it. At the 2012 Paris Fashion Week, Louis Vuitton showcased their Fall 2012 / 2013 fashion by having a train drive into the runway and unload all the models carrying or wearing LV fashion. It was a grand gesture that caught the attention of headline news sources and fashionistas around the globe.
Guess what? It is rumored to have a price tag of $8 million dollars. Rumors got started on how much the production cost was when Business of Fashion tweeted, “OK, apparently that custom built @LouisVuitton train at the A/W 2012 show cost 8 MILLION DOLLARS.”
People are trying to find out if this is true but Louis Vuitton declined to comment.
Whoah!! What a way to make a statement. And besides, don’t they say that luxury items are not affected by recession?
