It’s possible to be surprised by the story of Louis Vuitton founder. Louis Vuitton, a legend to be exact, left his home in France at 14 to travel to Paris by foot to fulfill his creative dream to become a trunk maker. The rest is history. He eventually founded his Maison in 1854.
The founder will be honored worldwide to celebrate his 200th birthday. A series of events will highlight how Louis’ visionary spirit lives on. The celebrations will begin on August 4th and continue through the year. A series of creative and entertaining formats that show the impact of the fashion house over its century-spanning history will be showcased around the world.
For instance, you can already try playing Louis: The Game, an interactive videogame has been launched by the house. The game pays tribute to the founder’s success story and offers an action-packed adventure through six imagined worlds that include New York, Paris, London, New York, and Beijing. You can now take Louis Vuitton mascot Vivienne on a journey that will lead her to her birthday destination.
