This will be the first time for Dior to stage a show in Egypt, following events in Italy, Greece, Spain, South Korea, China, the U.K. and the U.S. in recent years.

According to his statement to WWD, Jones said he would continue to travel the globe to gather inspiration and see rare and exotic animals in their natural habitat.

Dior last year resumed its pre-coronavirus traditions pre-fall men’s traveling collections with a show in London. Jones has already held pre-fall shows in Miami and Tokyo.

The British designer has a long-standing relationship with the African continent, as he spent his childhood in Botswana, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Kenya and Ghana.

Dior was founded in 1946 by French fashion designer Christian Dior (1905–1957), who was originally from Normandy.
