The show for John Galliano’s eponymous label will go on on Sunday – but the format and venue have been entirely changed.
Instead of a traditional catwalk at Left Bank brasserie La Coupole, the collection will be shown in an un-named hotel as a “tableau vivant” , according to reports.
A tableau vivant - or “living picture” - comprises a group of models dramatically lit, but is more static than a catwalk show.
Galliano, who was earlier this week sacked as head designer of French luxury fashion house Christian Dior over anti-Semitic remarks, will not be present at the show.
Meanwhile Dior is pressing ahead with its show catwalk today, and has reported a surge in demand for tickets.
It is expected to be a more straightforward production than usual, and according to reports photographers will not be allowed access backstage or to the front row.
LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, the luxury brandhouse which owns Dior, has a minority stake in John Galliano’s eponymous label. The exact size of the stake is undisclosed.
