Dior to stage cruise show at the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens
The marble stadium was the site of the first modern Olympics in 1896
Following 18 months of postponed, cancelled and virtual fashion shows, designers are now pulling out all the stops as they present their latest collections with a number of brands announcing exciting locations for their next shows. Dior is at the top of this list with the news that the house will host its next cruise show at the home of the modern Olympics, the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens, this June.
The French fashion house revealed the news this morning, via WWD, announcing that the Greek authorities had given permission for a show to take place, as well as several photo shoots, which will form part of the presentation. The house will collaborate with local creatives and artisans as part of the show and collection, something which Dior has made a habit of, including with its recent shows in Italy and Morocco.
