Several brands across various sectors plan to expand their business into the hospitality industry to connect with customers and market themselves through this medium.

Today, we are covering which fashion houses fall into this category!
Luxury Fashion Houses Owning Hotels:
A fresh entrant into the hospitality space by a luxury fashion label, Louis Vuitton, is preparing to convert its Paris headquarters into a hotel. CEO Michael Burke intends to revamp the HQ with a hotel, which might take a while. Although LVMH— the brand's parent company, already operates Cheval Blanc Paris, a luxury hotel, this will be the fashion house's first independent luxury hotel inside the HQ. Besides that, it will also house the world's largest LV store, a complete game changer! The view from the hotel will be of iconic landmarks like Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower, and even with the waiting of several years, the upcoming plan seems super promising and exciting! The fashion house is kickstarting with a pop-up at the HQ— LV Dream, starting December 12, with an exhibition featuring installations of the label's various artist collaborations.
