In Pics: A fashion show in a desert!

Last updated on: May 15, 2017 15:49 IST

Dior unveiled its Cruise Collection 2018 in the wilderness.

In the past there have been shows in museums and art galleries. But Dior has done the impossible by hosting a show in the desert.

Their Cruise Collection 2018 was unveiled in the Santa Monica Mountains near Los Angeles -- the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve in the Santa Monica Mountains in California served as the backdrop.

Take a look at the celebs who attended the show and the collection that was presented at the gorgeous location.

The desert served as a ramp and the audience was seated in tents as they watched the show unfold. Hot air balloons in the background added a hint of excitement to the show that was held in the wilderness. 
This spot has featured in Hollywood movie Gone With the Wind (1939).

Earthy outfits in sunset tones of brown, burnt umber and ocher ruled the collection as models sashayed down dressed in flat-brimmed hats and leather boots or sandals.
