When it comes to coordinating a fashion show, there’s one matter that must be sorted out before you worry about the clothes or the models — and that is location, location, location. The venue of your event sets the tone for your whole show, which is why a luxury casino-resort is a prime setting, as it delivers both on elegance and entertainment. Read on to find out our top 3 picks from some of the world’s most exciting fashion capitals.
The Ritz Club in London, England
From the respected fashion house Burberry to Duchess Kate Middleton’s go-to designer Emilia Wickstead, London Fashion Week showcases the industry’s most sophisticated collections. This is why it’s only fitting to host your fashion show at one of London’s fanciest locations: The Ritz Club.
Located at the luxury hotel’s basement, the exclusive casino is the perfect place to hold a high-end fashion show. With its domed ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and gilded touches, guests will truly feel like they’re watching a posh London Fashion Week show. What’s more, The Ritz Club’s painted walls are a beautiful backdrop for every fashionista’s celebrity-worthy selfie.

Indeed, the charm of the casino club will make your display reminiscent of the intimate 1950s fashion shows. Hosting a show here will have everyone feeling like a star — especially if they win a poker or blackjack game!
Casinò di Venezia in Venice, Italy
When it comes to fashion, Italians certainly know how to put on an unforgettable fashion show. Who can forget when Fendi hosted a show at the Trevi Fountain? Or, more recently, when Jennifer Lopez closed Versace’s Milan Fashion Week Spring 2020 show wearing a recreation of that iconic green dress she wore in the 2000 Grammy Awards?

For an exciting fashion show, you can invite guests to the city of Venice, home to the smaller yet equally beloved Venice Fashion Week, and host it at Casinò di Venezia. Not only is it a palatial estate for guests to marvel at, but it also provides access to the casino’s many table games and slot machines.

Compared to other fashion capitals, the Italians know that fashion week shouldn’t be taken too seriously, and hosting one at this casino can help bring both entertainment and enjoyment to the runway, which can be set up alongside poker tables. And PPPoker’s Twitter profile illustrates this humorous aspect with its comedic portrayals of the game, reminding players and fashionistas alike that casinos are a place to let loose and have fun. Who knows, maybe one of your guests will have her own JLo moment, too.
Le Club Barrière Paris in Paris, France
While Paris Fashion Week may be the grandest one of them all, CNN Style points out that it’s best to avoid holding a show outdoors during September — the industry’s second Fashion Month — due to Paris’ grey skies. There’s no need to fret, however, as an exceptional indoor location for your fashion show awaits you at Le Club Barrière Paris.

Here, your stylish guests will surely feel immersed in the fashion capital’s local culture, since the newly opened casino club is located at the glorious Avenue des Champs-Elysées. Moreover, Le Club Barrière Paris is elegantly designed with its sleek wood panels and embellished ceilings. Plus, its rich red carpet will definitely take your fashion show up a notch.
