French fashion house Chanel brings glamour to old Havana Tuesday when it stages its first Latin American fashion show on the communist island. It is the latest in a stream of international cultural events in Cuba as it opens up its diplomatic and commercial relations. The show will present the latest collection by German designer Karl Lagerfeld, inspired by the colors of the Caribbean and classic "aesthetics of Cuba".For years, the communist principles that ruled in Cuba after revolutionary Fidel Castro won power in 1959 insisted on equality, even in clothing.The future of fashion will depend on if and when U.S. lawmakers end the 54-year trade embargo on Cuba – still in place despite the diplomatic thaw.
