Christian Audigier to Paris?

Comments | | Print

(NEW YORK) The trend du moment is for designers to flock to London Fashion Week for its 25th anniversary, but at least one big name is making a move from his home base elsewhere: Daily obsession Christian Audigier. The mogul behind Ed Hardy, Von Dutch, and his eponymous line (not to mention myriad spinoffs, from Ed Hardy swimwear and shoes to a recently-launched line of Ed Hardy Champagne and wines, available at Harvey Nichols and Selfridges) told Vogue UK that he would be showing during Paris Fashion Week in October. The designer, who has presented his over-the-top collections in Los Angeles for many seasons (as well as showing his swim collections during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami), is making quite a jump from the West Coast to the French fashion epicenter, but in true Ed Hardy style, it won’t be an understated affair. Audigier promises a “big celebrity” who will perform at his Parisian show; though he wouldn’t reveal whom, he hinted: "You know all the names; you can guess." Dare we hope for Madonna?
