Francesco Risso will become creative director of the label.
The designer will present his fall 2017 men’s collection on Feb. 1.
The Design Trust for Public Space and the CFDA have launched “Making Midtown: Sustaining Design and Production in an Evolving Garment Center.”
The collection comes just six months after he was awarded the official haute couture seal by the Chambre Syndicale, French fashion’s governing body.
Riccardo Tisci’s fall collections for Givenchy — which featured snarling Rottweiler prints for him, panthers for her — inspired a campaign with equal ferocity.
