Â Madame Clicquot, who was famously widowed in October 1805. A trailblazer of her time, she single-handedly took on her late husbandâ€™s champagne business, and went on to pioneer several industry innovations whilst demonstrating her unparalleled creative dexterity, much like Carine Roitfeld. â€‹Now firmly established on the London calendar, this annual event allows Veuve Clicquot to seek seminal creatives who have an unfulfilled desire or passion project they wish to bring to life mirroringâ€‹ â€‹theâ€‹ â€‹valuesâ€‹ â€‹ofâ€‹ â€‹Madameâ€‹ â€‹Clicquot. Carine will be using various forms of symbolism to nod to the heritage of the house – one of which is Madame Clicquotâ€™s birthday year, 1777, reflected in the overall theme.
