For a brief moment in the ’90s, Miami was the unofficial fashion capital of America. It looks like this may happen again. It’s been announced that the next Dior Men's (Kim Jones) runway show will take place in Miami, this December.

The British designer has been the creative director of Dior Men’s since March 2018. Jones is on a mission to explore the rich heritage of the French fashion label. “The US was the first place after France where Christian Dior enjoyed success, and I am looking at a project he did in the 1950s in the States as a starting point for Fall,” commented Jones. “I am really looking forward to presenting our first men’s show in the US as the perfect precursor to Art Basel.

The news follows suit of other European houses. In recent seasons Chanel, Versace, Vuitton and Saint Laurent have all shown collections in the US. With Jeremy Scott regularly showing at LA fashion week there's now a shift in American Fashion, New York is no longer the only hub.

In the past, Jones has collaborated with Artist Hajime Sorayama, KAWS and Daniel Arsham on a series of projects. It’s possible that another collaboration may happen with the show being so close to Art Basel. Jones is an avid art lover and keen collector. 

In anticipation of the Miami show, we take a look at Kim Jones best runway moments for Dior.
