Last year, Dior creative director Raf Simons professed his love for LA, calling our city "like Antwerp—relaxing and calm." We already know that the Belgian designer is fond of local talents, and now WWD reports that he's staging the French fashion house's cruise show in the City of Angels. Oui, oui, oui!
The industry trade pub notes that the date's been set for May 9th, but the exact coordinates have yet to be confirmed. Now that NYC-based label Ruffian has already turned LA into its runway and Tom Ford slated to show here next month, who'll be the next big name to recognize LA's fashion capital potential? Stay tuned for more.
