Riccardo Tisci


It’s the end of an era.

As Riccardo Tisci bids farewell to Givenchy after 12 years, his fashion legacy is being retraced.

The Italian designer dressed some of the most influential personalities of the last few years, including Meryl Streep, Beyoncé, Julia Roberts, Marina Abramovic, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, among others. A daring innovator, Tisci has been able to give life to a real gang of prominent names, friends before clients, who have become more familiar to the masses also thanks to the designer’s social media accounts.

So leave it to Instagram to sample the influence Tisci had over the audience. His 1.8 million followers in particular are pouring praises and encouraging comments under the designer’s latest post. In fact, Tisci chose the image of a sunset to capture his sentiment toward the French fashion house, completed with a moving caption that reads “A giant heartfelt thank you to #givenchy, #lvmh, my incredible team, the magical atelier and everyone who made these 93 collections possible and all the other crazy adventures. Your love and support, in the day and in the night, will forever remain in my heart. #love #givenchy #forever.”

Givenchy’s official Instagram account echoed that, posting the designer’s portrait and applauding “Riccardo Tisci’s vision that led to a very successful twelve-year partnership. We warmly thank him for his outstanding contribution to our beautiful ongoing story ❤”
