Star designer Riccardo Tisci leaves Givenchy

Thu 2nd February, 2017 5:34pm
By Dominique Vidalon 
    PARIS, Feb 2 (Reuters) - Riccardo Tisci, who revitalised 
Givenchy with his dark, edgy vibe, is leaving after twelve years 
as creative designer, the French fashion house said on Thursday. 
   The statement described the parting as mutual and effective 
on the expiry of Tisci's contract on January 31, adding that a  
successor will be announced soon. 
    Tisci's exit will strengthen speculation he could be headed 
to Versace, though there is no confirmation as yet.  
    Tisci did not say what he would do next but said he wished 
to focus on his "personal interests and passions". 
    Bernard Arnault, chairman and chief executive officer of 
LVMH  LVMH.PA , Givenchy's parent, said: "The chapter Riccardo 
Tisci has written with the house of Givenchy over the last 12 
years represents an incredible vision to sustain its continuous 
success, and I would like to warmly thank him for his core 
contribution to the house's development". 
    Over the past twelve months a string of star designers have 
left top fashion houses Christian Dior  DIOR.PA , Yves Saint 
Laurent, Valentino, Lanvin and most recently Chloe  CFR.S .
