Saint Laurent Sets Its Sights on NYC
According to WWD, Saint Laurent will leave its ultra-glamorous show location in Paris and head to New York City on June 6th for a special presentation.

The exact location is TBD – as is the nature of the show – leaving us to wonder if this is a replacement for its Spring/Summer 2019 show (which would typically happen in September) or a standalone event.
