Ariana Grande is the new face of Givenchy

It’s true. The fashion industry is constantly in a whirlwind of changes and staying relevant is quite a challenge. However, if a fashion house has undergone new creative direction and managed to gain and secure some high profiled figures as friends, then there’s no way to go but up. And that’s what Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller did.

It is with great excitement that French Maison Givenchy reveals its new face – a strong independent woman of refreshing character and style: the multi-talented Ariana Grande.

The only woman to lead the creative reigns at Givenchy has garnered immense success since her debut- especially afterdressing the Duchess of Sussex for her wedding and for several occasions after that. Before she came on board in 2017, Riccardo Tisci was at the helm and some of his biggest muses included Beyoncé, Naomi Campbell, Madonna and Kim Kardashian, to name a few. The French fashion house has a long history of collaborating with the world’s biggest celebrities. Founder Hubert de Givenchy was responsible for many of Audrey Hepburn’s most famous looks.

And whilst Keller was not one to make bold risks through her visual campaigns, unlike Tisci, she officially ended that streak over the weekend as she announced the newest face of Givenchy. On Friday, the French Maison announced that Ariana Grande is the newest face to join the Givenchy family and will make her official debut with a full campaign due for the Fall season.

I am so proud to be the new face of Givenchy. It is a House I have forever admired and to now be part of that family is such an honour. I love this clothing and the confidence and joy it brings to the people wearing it. Not only is the clothing timeless and beautiful but I’m proud to work with a brand that makes people feel celebrated for who they are, and unapologetic about whatever they want to be.

The full Givenchy Fall-Winter 2019 campaign starring the pop star will be unveiled in July. We’ll keep you all updated when the Ariana Grande for Givenchy FW19 campaign officially rolls out. Stay tuned!

Riccardo-Tiscis-appointment-as-new-Burberry-Creative-Chief-3.jpg

It has just been announced that former Givenchy creative head Riccardo Tisci, 43, a graduate of Central St. Martins in London, will assume the role of Chief Creative Officer of Burberry. Tisci joins Burberry after more than a decade at the French Maison, where he succeeded creative giants like Alexander McQueen and Julien Macdonald in 2005 to take the role of Creative Director for both menswear and women’s couture.

I am delighted that Riccardo is joining Burberry. He is one of the most talented designers of our time. His designs have an elegance that is contemporary and his skill in blending streetwear with high fashion is highly relevant to today’s luxury consumer. Riccardo’s creative vision will reinforce the ambitions we have for Burberry and position the brand firmly in luxury.

Marco Gobbetti, Burberry’s chief executive

Marco Gobbetti and Riccardo Tisci – both Italians – had worked together at Givenchy, where Marco Gobbetti was the French brand’s chief executive and hired Riccardo Tisci in 2005. He was noted for changing Givenchy’s house codes with his own style and influences, giving the Parisian fashion house dark and sensual romanticism and an extended colour palette, exploring flashy colors, like baby blue, blood red, metallic hues, and floral prints. Riccardo Tisci was responsible for transforming the brand from a house defined largely by the relationship between Hubert de Givenchy, the founder, and Audrey Hepburn, his greatest muse, to a house beloved by 21st-century celebrities such as the Kardashians and a social media force.

Tisci announced his resignation from Givenchy in February 2017. After 12 years, Riccardo Tisci will officially become Burberry’s new Chief Creative Officer on 12 March 2018. Tisci joins Burberry filling Christopher Bailey’s creative duties. Mr. Tisci also seemed excited about a return to London and the challenge of tackling another major luxury brand in need of a Renaissance man.

From June 15 to December 31, 2017, The Museum of Lace and Fashion in Calais, France, is holding an exhibition dedicated to the work of Hubert de Givenchy, the legendary fashion designer and founder of the French Maison. Seventy outfits symbolizing his inspirations, his expertise and his significant encounters recap almost six decades of fashion design. Now 90, the designer has dressed some of the most amazing women in the last 50 years, from Audrey Hepburn to The Begum Aga Khan to Daisy Fellows.

The master of couture and dress presents an inside look to his work and inspiration.

The show will see 70 outfits from private wardrobes, the Givenchy archives and the collection of several European museums go on public display for over six months. Under the artistic direction and curation of Hubert de Givenchy himself, the exhibition will retrace the couturier’s entire career, from his first collection in 1952 to his sumptuous wedding gowns and his key encounters.

The show, which presents couture creations in sober white, gray and black display cases backed by mirrors, opens with a section dedicated to haute couture fabric samples. Essential tools in the creation of bespoke garments, the different fabrics and textiles with which Hubert de Givenchy worked hold a key place in the exhibition. In fact, exceptional textiles are something of a running theme, with the show also highlighting the work of artisans the couturier worked with for decades, such as embroiderers Lesage and Vermont, and fabric manufacturers Abraham and Beuclère.

Standout pieces include a blue and white striped organza sheath dress worn by the Duchess of Windsor, a famous ‘Bettina’ cotton blouse dating from 1952, a spectacular ball gown in Chantilly Lace  and satin, an evening ensemble in lame brocade and embroidered with gold and silver braids, metallic leaves and beads, and a cocktail dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in Blake Edwards’ movie ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’.

Certain encounters proved particularly influential on the work of Hubert de Givenchy. From Jacqueline Kennedy and the Duchess of Windsor to the Countess de Borchgrave, the designer dressed some of society’s most stylish figures. Meeting his muse, Audrey Hepburn, proved particularly decisive, both for his career and for the actress’ style, which was built through their friendship. A whole section of the exhibition will explore this relationship, featuring several gowns worn by Audrey Hepburn in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ and ‘How to Steal a Million’, as well as clips from her movies.

In addition, the exhibition highlights the designer’s artistic inspirations and explores Givenchy fragrances, while also showcasing exceptional eveningwear creations and imposing wedding gowns made from lace and tulle.
