In just his second year as creative director of Gucci, Alessandro Michele continues to make waves with exciting changes at the Italian fashion house. For its cruise collection in June, Gucci will host the first-ever fashion show at Westminster Abbey. The iconic British church, which has hosted major historical events including Princess Diana's funeral and the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, has never permitted a fashion house to use its space as a catwalk in its 1,000-year history — until now. The show will be held on June 2 in the Cloisters of Westminster Abbey, a coup Michele describes as "magical."
