In homage to 9/11 Givenchy held it’s spring 2016 collection in New York City–in lower Manhattan–with the twin beams of light streaming up from the Freedom Tower in view, and with Ava Maria resounding over loudspeakers to the crowd at the closing of the collection.

It was a statement that fashion is an expression of the individual and an outlet for emotion–a powerful pairing for a day filled with grief, loss, as well as hope and endurance.

By bringing Givenchy’s Spring 2016 line to New York, Riccardo Tisci brought energy, excitement and of course, dramatic clothing to NYFW.

This season marked Tisci’s tenth year at Givenchy and he has continued to “up his game” and create wearable works of art.

Celebrities showed their support in a glittering fashion including Julia Roberts, Jennifer Hudson, Amanda Seyfried, Catherine Deneuve, Steven Tyler and Liv Tyler, Christina Ricci and Niki Minaj along with Kim and Kayne. And New York fashion royalty were there as well including Michael Kors, Vera Wang, Tory Burch, Jack McCollough, Lazaro Hernandez, Alexander Wang and Joseph Altuzarra.

At dusk on Pier 26, Tisci staged a stunning show of 88 looks featuring everything from haute couture to ready to wear, to menswear-inspired fashions culled from the past decade of designing for the house.

The major theme of the pieces was lingerie and tuxedo dressing, filled with lace and silk and a soft but sexy romanticism. Lingerie lace tops fit perfectly with vide-legged trousers, lace wrapped dresses evoked a naiveté and optimism, black silks pant suits floated down the runway. Elegant feathery evening gowns, exquisite detailing, soft kimono coats, sheer organdy trenches radiant with jet embroidery and many translucent lacy shifts were shown.

It was an experience that was meant to evoke strong emotions and Tisci accomplished that feat with brio.
