The Spring/Summer 2022 Haute Couture showcase will be held from 24 January to 27 January 2022.

Luxury houses such as Valentino, Christian Dior, Fendi Couture, Azzaro Couture and Chanel are among those coming back with live shows.

There were concerns that the event would be forced to go virtual once more after Giorgio Armani announced that he was cancelling his label's appearances in Paris and Milan this season.

When the announcement was made, there were fears that this would start a domino effect and other houses would pull-out but seemingly the show goes on.
