The luxury house will debut its next Métiers D’art collection with a show in the West African country’s capital Dakar on Dec. 6.

Within West Africa, Senegal enjoys the reputation as the region’s capital of couture craftsmanship. Dakar in particular is seen as a thriving fashion hub, home to a vibrant fashion ecosystem.

For Chanel, the annual Métiers D’art show is a way to promote its heritage in craftsmanship and highlight the work of its artisan partners.

”By choosing Dakar, the House wishes to make the savoir-faire of its Métiers d’art resonate with the artistic and cultural energy of the city,” the brand said in a statement.
