Dior couture is showing twice because the venue is small this year. They have been cutting down costs on locations recently. Dior’s latest cruise collection presentation is so much smaller scale than the usual full on runway shows.
Chanel couture is returning to the Grand Palais, will there be some giant sculpture/stage deco being built again?
Lacroix is having a “very small and simple presentation” with 20 outfits on live models. Due to the current situation at Lacroix, the staff and models are very likely to have volunteered for the showing without pay.
