The Givenchy show took place on March 8, 2015 during the Paris fashion week and attracted some of the world’s most popular celebrities. The style and theme of the show was dark and gothic but the energy and excitement was exceptional and definitely lived up to the Givenchy name. As always, I found myself impressed with its uniqueness.
An interesting aspect was the focus on facial jewelry. All of the models came out adorning heavy metallic pieces on their faces, which was definitely unique and strongly visual. This correlated to the atmosphere of the show, which felt exciting and powerful. When the models entered the runway, the attendees felt the incredible energy that the Givenchy design is legendary for.
Celebrities and various fashion industry leaders gathered backstage to show congratulations to Riccardo Tisci, the creative director for Givenchy. All of the energy from the runway was seen backstage as well. Behind the scenes, a plethora of interesting people and prominent figures were making connections and building friendships. Back on the runway, many of the details seen on the models were features Riccardo Tisci has previously incorporated in his shows. Some of the features I noticed were Catholic crosses stitched into dresses and cropped pants, all features popular with Givenchy. The designs were exceptional and the dark style of the show was carried throughout all of the different looks.
As always with Givenchy, the biggest allure is always seeing which celebrities are attending the fashion show. The biggest names sitting and enjoying the Givenchy show were legendary fashion icon Carine Roitfeld, and Hollywood stars Kim Kardashian, Kayne West and Katy Perry. Whenever such important celebrities or figures attend an event, it really solidifies that designer’s status as one of the world’s most influential. As well, when such important celebrities attend, it always has a big impact on the media after the show as it really brings in a lot of attention. Givenchy and Riccardo Tisci have definitely capitalized on this and continue to be a part of the most important pop culture scene.
In conclusion, the Givenchy show was a unique and exciting show showcasing Riccardo Tisci’s brilliance and amazing vision as creative director. With the attendance of such famous celebrities as well, the Givenchy show made a big impression at the Paris fashion week.
