WASHINGTON — LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior executives got the VIP treatment here this week with Francophiles in Congress and the White House throwing open some of the best doors in town to welcome them.
Mixing business with pleasure, Pamela Baxter, president of Christian Dior Inc., led the group Tuesday morning on a retail tour of the area. Beginning with a jaunt to Tysons Corner in Virginia, the group toured the handbag department at Saks Fifth Avenue and the shoe department at Neiman Marcus before heading back across the Potomac to meet the staff of the Dior boutique, which opened in 2006 in Chevy Chase, Md.
