Yesterday, DM Fashion Book officially confirmed that Riccardo Tisci has exited the French house Givenchy, after 12 years at the helm (see it here). His last collections were the Fall/Winter 2017 Men’s and Fall 2017 Couture, which was shown last month (see it here).

Last month, we exclusively reported that Italian fashion house Versace is in talks with Riccardo Tisci. Versace has made overtures to Tisci and held discussions in recent months (see it here).

A search is on for Riccardo Tisci‘s successor at Givenchy, and the brand won’t show during Paris Fashion Week.

Here’s another update on Tisci going to Versace.

It is being reported that Versace is a step closer to hiring Tisci. According to sources, the Italian fashion house is zeroing in on a signature with Tisci, even as the company reiterated that it does not comment on rumors. Versace is making final tweaks to its organization to welcome the 42-year-old designer.

Tisci is credited with resurrecting Givenchy with his dark, sensual and subversive collections. He helped rejuvenate the legacy of the brand.

During his time at Givenchy, Tisci revitalized the house’s couture business, as well as breathing much-needed life into its product categories, leading the creative direction for its womenswear, menswear and accessories.

He studied in Italy at the Design Istituto d’Arte Applicata in Cantu until the age of 17, and then graduated from London‘s Central Saint Martins Academy in 1999.

We look forward to the next chapter of Tisci storied fashion career.
