Dior may be without a creative director right now but the show must go on. The fashion house that Raf Simons used to helm has announced its decision to present its Cruise 2017 collection at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire. The show will take place on 31 May 2016.

This will be Dior's third time showing its collections at the birthplace of Winston Churchill – the first was in 1954 with Christian Dior himself and the second in 1958 when Dior was led by Yves Saint Laurent. Princess Margaret, sister to Queen Elizabeth II, was present at both shows.

However, Dior isn't the only brand that's going to England; Gucci too will show its Cruise 2017 collection at Westminster Abbey on 2 June 2016.
