The Great Designers: Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy

Riccardo Tisci is most definitely one of kind. He was born in 1974 to a family with eight daughters. At the age of 17 the teenager, raised in Como, Italy, left his country to go study design in the Saint Martins school of Arts in London, where he graduated with honors. After that Riccardo Tisci returned to Italy and for almost five years worked in the shadows of brands like Antonio Berardi, Coccapani, Puma and Ruffo Research. In December 2004 the designer presented his first collection under his own name. Orchestrated more like a happening rather than a typical fashion show. On July, 7th 2005 Riccardo Tisci presented his first Haute Couture Collection for Givenchy. 

What's typical for him is the treatment of tulle by distorting it, by embroidering it. Also experimental jersey that's raw-cut and draped, leather that's double layered and burnt to expose Swarovski crystals. Tisci's work is conceptual, sexual and romantic raw. When working he has in mind a woman that's confident in personality and body and understands sexiness. This man's philosophy is one we should all follow: "Do good things and forget them, do bad things and remember them."

"My definition of beauty is something between extremely ugly and extremely fantastic." ~ Riccardo Tisci

Normally I share with you only my favorite pieces of a collection, but the Givenchy Fall 2011 line is gorgeous so I am going to post every single beautiful dress!
