Gucci – Cine Gucci Exhibition
Cine Gucci was an exhibition event that showcased over 400 unique outfits from the international fashion brand Gucci. The event took place at Ho Chi Minh City Opera House and featured many stars such as My Linh, Tran Thanh – Hari Won, Ho Ngoc Ha, Thanh Hang, Lan Khue, etc. Because this is a major and important event, there are only 100 VIP guests invited. Gucci has responded to the desire of its “friends-of-houses”, its most loyal supporters, by providing outstanding performances. This includes contextual design, more than 400 designs and the original creations of the Italian fashion House, which were displayed for four consecutive days.
The masterpieces, Love Parade (Gucci spring summer 2022), which walked on Las Vegas Avenue 6 months ago, and Evening Gown, designed for the world’s illusions at the Grammy Awards, show that style doesn’t have to be defined by distance. You can also attend the exhibition and enjoy outstanding musical and theatre performances, dinner teas, and a royal dinner. This extravagant, lavish party features fashion and music for the wealthy upper classes of Vietnam.
Prior to the show, Gucci had invited celebrities and KOLs from Vietnam’s fashion world to join them. The event was also a promotion campaign that resulted in direct sales for customers. It is clear that this event is exceptional and offers an entirely new experience for loyal customers. They are greeted in an exquisite and luxurious space, and enjoy the most premium care services, such as being advised 1-1 by Gucci’s secret room, watching performances by top artists, and wearing their own clothes designed by Gucci. These delicate touchpoints not only help create a classy fashion experience but also stimulate Vietnamese consumers’ desire for spending and luxury shopping.
