Riccardo Tisci‘s Givecnhy is going public. No, not an IPO, but another kind-one that could get you tickets to his upcoming show.
When Tisci presents his Givenchy Spring 2016 collection at New York Fashion Week: The Shows on September 11, members of the general public will be able to attend, making up a huge portion of his audience.
WWD reports, “Twelve hundred ‘real people’ — mostly non-industry, non-celebrity civilians (no proof of Givenchy purchase required) as well as a cadre of students and faculty from local fashion schools — will attend, along with the usual show-going industry suspects.“
“Givenchy is working closely with the City of New York on this public-audience project. The house will allot most of the tickets — 820 of them — on a first-come/first-served basis to registrants at a Web site set up in partnership with nycgo.com, the City’s marketing office.”
“The Web site address will be released Tuesday Sept. 1 at 10 a.m. via the social media outlets of Givenchy, NYCgo, the CFDA and KCD, and will open to potential recipients at 10 a.m. on Wednesday. Tickets will be available for pickup in advance of the show. A block of 280 tickets has been set aside for students and faculty from FIT, Parsons, Pratt Institute and the High School for Fashion Industries. In addition, another 100 tickets will be distributed to residents living in proximity to the still-under-wraps show venue, with details made public closer to the show.”
The show is scheduled to begin at 6:30, doors will open at 6 p.m.
