PARIS — LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton is putting its stamp on an initiative that casts a broad net for aspiring artisans in have-not neighborhoods, and trains them for a variety of luxury métiers, WWD has learned.
Starting in September, roughly 20 young people are to commence special two-year degree courses in jewelry or dressmaking that include paid work terms at LVMH brands and additional mentoring from the French luxury group’s in-house experts.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
