Vogue captured a bit of the flavor of Givenchy‘s first runway show in NYC. Designer Riccardo Tisci discusses what New York means to him and how this debut in the shadow of the new World Trade Center staged on 9/11 was not only a big moment, but a dream come true.
Vogue‘s Sarah Mower summed it the mood and meaning;
“That calm exposition of skill and taste, which surely grows out of nineties memories, will stay in the minds of everyone who was on Pier 26 tonight. The tragedy of 9/11 can never be overwritten by any fashion show —and nor should it be— but at the same time, anyone who condemns fashion for concerning itself with current feelings is wrong, too.”
