We already knew Paris as the fashion capital of the world, but now it is official. The French capital is opening a new gallery to house the permanent collections at Palais Galliera, aptly named “The Gabrielle Chanel Rooms”. Exhibition rooms – resulting of a 7,211 square foot space – are to be created in the Palais’s basement area, with the support of the City of Paris and the exclusive sponsorship of Chanel.

The new gallery is slated to open late 2019 and the new spaces will be devoted to the history of fashion from the 18th century to the present day. The museum’s will showcase permanent collections, which comprise some 200,000 garments, accessories, and documents.

The Palais Galleria is already considered the Fashion Museum of Paris, but currently only displays temporary exhibits. The new area will have a year-round exhibit dedicated to fashion’s history from the 18th century to today, plus a learning workshop and a bookstore.

The city is hoping the partnership will draw visitors — both French and international — to Paris, which experienced a sharp decline in tourism in 2016 after militant attacks, floods, and strikes.
