It’s sad news at the Givenchy house, as their creative designer, Riccardo Tisci, will be leaving. Tisci had a 12-year tenure at the fashion house and ultimately transformed it into what it is now. It’s rumored that he’ll be heading over to work with Donatella at Versace following Givenchy. He isn’t quite done yet, as he’s dressing celebrities at the upcoming Grammy Awards, but after that, his reign at the brand will end. Countless celebrities have shown adoration for his designs, from Beyoncé to Julia Roberts to Kim Kardashian.
Beyoncé was an avid Tisci wearer. Not only did he design gowns for the singer, he also designed tour outfits as well. One particular dress that received lots of attention was the sheer, baring, dress at the 2015 Met Ball. She out-dressed every person there. Additionally, in the 2014, 2013, and 2012 Met Ball, she also slayed in Tisci-designed ensembles. She wore Givenchy during her “On the Run” tour.
Kim was also a huge fan of the designer. In fact, her most recent wedding dress was designed by him. She wore a floral maternity piece at the 2013 Met Gala that was highly discussed. The Kardashian-West’s have been good friends with the designer for some time now. Kim even covered Sorbet Magazine‘s Fall 2015 BFF issue with Tisci.
It’s evident that Riccardo Tisci had an immense impact on Kim and Beyoncé, and there were so many more celebrities that he continually designed for. Namely, he often worked with Madonna, even designing her Superbowl ensemble. Clearly, he’ll be missed by those who frequented his work.
