Designer Riccardo Tisci isn’t just hitting his stride designing for Givenchy (though the following video of his Fall 2011 collection is also testament to this growing prowess), it seems timing is playing a part too. Rumors are swirling on Tisci’s possible appointment at Dior. In any case, if you weren’t in Paris to check out [...]
Paris fashion week est arrivée! Be ready for a week plus of style drama and of course French chic. Here’s some #PFW peeks from around the Web.

After a stellar show last season in London, the Turkish-born designer has moved onto primetime – namely Paris Fashion [...]
