Givenchy Spring Summer 2016 Runway Show at NYFW

Danielle Greene

Invitation to the Givenchy SS 2016 Runway Show

Last week, I’d actually won a pair of “golden tickets” to attend Givenchy’s show at New York Fashion Week. At the time, I was in London, utterly unprepared without wardrobe choices. Well, I had a bit too much fun shopping Portabello Road and at Dover Street in London, but found some gorgeous items, some to sell and some staples I may never part with. I wore this amazing dress by Kei Ninomiya (Comme des Garcons) and necklace from the most recent Givenchy collection.

The sun was beginning to set, and the NYC skyline and the importance of the date were a poignant and emotional backdrop. We were finally ushered into the set at the end of the pier, made of wood and rusted corrugated metal, and ended up close to the runway on a three-level platform that ran the length of the set. It must’ve been around 50 feet long, but I’m terrible at estimating distances.

As people wandered in, it was a treat seeing designers that have inspired and informed my style, including Alexander Wang, Michael Kors, and Rachel Zoe. For over an hour, fashion world legends and celebrities took their seats-Anna Wintour, Liv and Steven Tyler, Grace Coddington, Amanda Seyfried, David Copperfield, Christina Ricci, the muse of the collection-Julia Roberts, and the aforementioned Rachel Zoe, Michael Kors, and Alexander Wang. Right before the show started, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West arrived greeted by to the loud cheers and gasps of many of the 1200 public invitees.

And finally, the show began. It was breathtaking. Specifically, Tisci mastered the tension between lingerie and tuxedos in monochrome, with nods to Valentino (lace), the label’s history of edgy transparency, and masculine femininity during the 88 look-show. Some of my favorites were: 

I am exceptionally grateful to Ricardo Tisci for inviting me and over 1200 lucky individuals to this amazing show. On such a somber date for U.S. and particularly NYC history, his grace and beauty were prescient throughout the show, from the clothes to the set, to the music. It has left a lasting impression on me of what is possible in the fashion world, which can feel exclusive and inaccessible. The show was honest, sincere, and came together into an epic runway collection.
