Continuing its ambitious commitment with LVMH’s Métiers d’Excellence, the Group will participate in De(ux)mains du Luxe held from December 14 to 17 at Station F to showcase 280 crafts of know-how in Creation, Craftsmanship and Customer Experience to the general public and in particular young people to spark new vocations.
For four days, the event will welcome middle school students, teachers and families to discover the skills of the Group’s Houses in its various sectors through fun participatory workshops. LVMH will present them with opportunities for guidance and training offered by the Institute of Métiers d’Excellence.
The LVMH space and its Maisons will thus offer a different daily program of craft experiences showing the richness and variety of opportunities in know-how trades. Visitors can:
- Discover our Houses’ know-how through participatory workshops – sewing with Christian Dior Couture, leather goods with Louis Vuitton, bottle-making with Guerlain, perfume creation with LVMH Fragrance Brands, table art with Cheval Blanc and cosmetic formulation with LVMH Research.
- Immerse themselves in our Métiers d’Excellence during virtual reality experiences.
- Learn more about Métiers d’Excellence with interactive quizzes and prizes to be won.
LVMH is also taking part in the inaugural roundtable of the event on Thursday December 14 at 10:20 am on the theme: How to re-enchant handcrafts among younger people and remove obstacles? Training courses, career paths within companies, parents, orienters, with participation from Alexandre Boquel, Director of Métiers d’Excellence at LVMH.
Alexandre Boquel will also represent LVMH on the Tik Tok Challenge jury organized by the Comité Colbert open to all young artisans, apprentices and enthusiasts of craft trades to share his journey, his vocation and seduce encourage other young people. Two prizes will be awarded on opening day.
« Métiers d’Excellence are pleased to collaborate with Comité Colbert for their second edition event De(ux)mains du Luxe. It is by pooling our efforts to make all French know-how trades known among young generations that we will succeed in creating momentum and preparing for talent renewal. With 75 Houses worldwide, the LVMH group brings together an unparalleled heritage of over 280 know-how trades worldwide most located in France.
