Everyone knows the fuss that followed Alexander Wang's somewhat historic decision to use the remote Brooklyn Navy Yard as the venue for his Autumn/Winter 2014 show. We'll excuse you if you're a little surprised to know that Dior has chosen the same warehouse to show its Spring/Summer 2015 pre-collection on 7 May.

Despite the fact that Navy Yard had proven an inconvenient destination for Alexander's guests particularly in terms of the journey, Dior's choice doesn't lack deliberation. "We wanted the show to feel very New York, and the Navy Yard's view and space captures the city," a Dior spokeswoman said.

But what about the traffic chaos that Alexander Wang's show attendees had to go through? Dior's response: they will be providing door-to-door car and ferry services for its guests to and from the show.
