Fall-winter fashion show — including the full-scale locomotive — to be reprised in China.

ALL ABOARD: The Louis Vuitton Express, the full-scale locomotive that chugged into the Louis Vuitton fall-winter 2012 fashion show at the Cour Carrée du Louvre in Paris last month — carrying model passengers dressed in the collection — is set to travel to Shanghai in late July, WWD has learned.


Vuitton is to celebrate the arrival of the train there with another fashion show for the fall collection, including 10 new looks, in a yet-to-be-decided location. The event is to coincide with the reopening of Louis Vuitton’s store at the Plaza 66 luxury mall in Shanghai.
