Givenchy's New Face

Aside from the typical model, Riccardo Tisci (Givenchy house designer), steered clear from choosing models based on the traditional standards. Instead Tisci took on a unique approach for finding a new face, selecting new model, T. Lea. T. Lea, his transgender and longtime assistant to become part of the Givenchy inspiration. The choice aimed at casting new light on a more masculine-feminine dichotomy for the Fall line. I believe his signature collection embraces the untamed designer in everyone. I am constantly impressed by what crazy ideas designers come up with, and the direction in which they choose to go. From extreme ad campaigns, to making wild imagination a reality, I love fashion.
