Last year the event was hosted in London, while the year before the Big Apple was the backdrop for the high fashion extravaganza. 

Speaking on the event, Vogue’s global editorial director and Condé Nast chief content officer Anna Wintour, said: ‘If Vogue World: New York was a street fair, and Vogue World: London was a glamorous night at the theatre…

A percentage of the net proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the humanitarian organisation Secours Populaire. 

The organisation facilitates access to essential equipment for young, aspiring athletes across France.
