Riccardo Tisci Chooses Donatella Versace

Earlier this week, Riccardo Tisci revealed on his Instagram feed that Miss Versace herself would be modelling the forthcoming Givenchy Fall 2015 Campaign, stating her as his most recent "Ultimate Icon". Like WOW! It's not too often you see fashion designers helping one another out quite like this, in an industry with the unfortunate reputation is has. I guess this strikes up the question for as to why? Is it because the fashion industry is a means to compete against each other? Who knows. But just maybe this is an important turn for the fashion industry, one where competing is kept strictly professional. To top things off, Donatella Versace re-gramed the photograph, politely thanking Riccardo for the opportunity, captioning it: "For my talented friend Riccardo. Together we break fashion boundaries today!" and later "You made my day unforgettable" and it just goes to show you can be in fashion and be nice. As exciting as it is, with Donatella modelling the latest Givenchy advertising campaign, I think the question on everybody's mind is could Riccardo Tisci take the reigns at Versace a few years down the line? Honestly I've never even gave it a second thought but you know what, I think after building such a strong portfolio with the French Fashion House over the last decade I feel he has the potential to bring something fresh to Versace. Of course with being Italian himself and alongside his love for dark romance and Catholic influences I feel he could be a perfect match as head of design.

Anyway before I go, I want to know what you all think? Could Riccardo Tisci be a possible candidate for the future of the Versace Fashion House? Let me know in the comments section below. If you're interested in what I had to say in regards to the Givenchy Fall 2015 Menswear show, the link is here. But goodbye for another week and I'll see you next Friday. Take care and stay safe.
