by David Pedroza, Editor-in-Chief

Riccardo Tisci demonstrated his devotion to the craft of Haute Couture with his latest couture collection for the house of Givenchy, with a new found identiy due to Tisci's experiments and attempts throught the past few years. The House declared to stop runway presentations for couture, in favor of private viewings of the colletion, presenting only 10 exceptional works of art. Each piece, with a concetration in evening wear, was an great execution of haute couture by Givenchy's Atelier. Gowns of lace covered in fine beading, requiring up to 1,600 hours of hand work by techniqualy skilled hands. One catsuit was decorated with a Swarovski crystal skeleton, and a dress in Chantilly lace was appliquéd in leather duplicating a lace pattern with cascade of dégradé ostrich feathers. Riccardo Tisici proved there is a strong demand in haute couture, especialy in the rare and the beautiful.
