Creative Director Riccardo Tisci Leaves Givenchy

by MR Magazine Staff

Riccardo Tisci, creative director at Givenchy since 2005, has exited the French brand. The designer, who is much-liked in the industry, left at the end of January. His menswear and couture collections shown together in Paris on 20 January were his last collection as a Givenchy designer. It is understood that Tisci’s final designs will be seen on the red carpet – at present, gowns for the Grammy awards and the Oscars, created by Tisci with Givenchy, are being made by the atelier. Tisci’s replacement is still unknown, but several high-profile designers are currently on the market including Hedi Slimane, who left Saint Laurent last year, and Clare Weight Keller, who announced last week that she would be leaving Chloé. Olivier Rousteing, currently at Balmain (and with a starry Instagram following that includes the Kardashians and Hadids) may also be on the shortlist. Read more at The Guardian.
