EDINBURGH, Dec. 5, 2012 /CNW/ - The Hollywood film producer joins Lagerfield for lavish after-show
dinner at the Linlithgow Palace
Rebecca Wang, from Rebecca Wang Entertainment, attended the latest Metiers d'Art Chanel show, which this year took
place in Scotland. Karl Lagerfeld, the creative director of luxury
Paris brand Chanel, ensured a major coup for Scotland this winter by
choosing a ruined palace in West Lothian as the dramatic backdrop for
the brand's most spectacular and extravagant fashion show.

The Metiers d'Art Collection 2012/13 took place at the very special
location of Linlithgow Palace on Tuesday 4th December at 6pm. Entry to
the event was by invitation only. The collection presented the latest
beautiful creations from the design studio founded by Coco Chanel.
The Collection series, which launched in 2003, has previously been shown
in iconic locations such as Grand Central Station in New York, Huangpu
Park in Shanghai and other exotic venues in Tokyo, Moscow, Bombay,
Paris and London.
The Metiers d'Art show always carries a clear theme. Karl Lagerfeld
chose Edinburgh as the location for the collection, inspired by the
rich heritage of Chanel in Scotland and the craftsmanship of Scottish
tweed and cashmere, which are an integral and iconic part of Chanel's
creations. Linlithgow Palace was selected for its fairytale-like surroundings, gothic architecture,
nearby lake and adjacent rocky hills.
The 15th century palace, which overlooks a lake and a park, is situated
24 miles west of Edinburgh and was also the birthplace of Mary Queen of
Scots and King James V.
Due to the legendary reputation of the Metiers d'Art shows in the
fashion world, Linlithgow dwellers are thrilled to have hosted such a
high calibre event in their small town. The event was seen by the
locals as a fantastic opportunity to showcase Scotland's culture and
heritage in the Year of Creative Scotland 2012. Historic Scotland
worked with fellow tourism agencies to capitalise on the opportunities
the international show brought.
Attendees from all over the world have had the opportunity to visit the
capital's tourist attractions, including the palace and the Royal Yacht
Britannia. The guest list comprised of prominent figures within the
fashion and entertainment industry. Those invited included Brad Pitt
and Angelina Jolie, Anna Wintour, Rebecca Wang, Carine Roitfeld and
