The news is out: Gucci's creative director Alessandro Michele has chosen one of London's most iconic places as the setting of the house's Cruise 2017 fashion show—Westminster Abbey. The Gothic church has hosted at least 16 royal weddings over a span of more than 900 years, and Gucci will be the first fashion house to host a runway show in this historic location. With the previous show staged the DIA-Art Foundation in NYC, this year's show will be presented at the Cloisters at Westminster Abbey.
