For spring 2010, the man best known for lamé tattoo prints, Von Dutch trucker hats, and wearing silk patterned blazers will show at Paris Fashion Week. So somewhere amongst John Galliano, Karl Lagerfeld, Dries Van Noten, and Lanvin, the name “Christian Audigier” will appear on the schedule. Audigier usually shows in places like L.A. or Miami for Swim Fashion Week, so Paris is certainly something new for him. Also among his strongest geographical ties is Las Vegas, home to Christian Audigier: The Nightclub, where bottles start at the recession-friendly price of $100 (Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt also hosted the New Year’s party there). Despite all that, Audigier’s show could be one of the buzziest of the season. He tells British Vogue his show will include a performance by a “big celebrity.” Pressed for details, he replied, “You know all the names; you can guess.” We’re at once afraid and hopeful that it’s Madonna. She’s supposedly designing a line for him.
