>> With all the high profile weddings this year, it's no wonder that the idea of a white, floor-length gown has seeped into Riccardo Tisci's mind. For the Givenchy Fall 2011 couture collection, he produced ten such dresses, shown grouped into three rooms named "tears of angels," the "cloud room," and "bird of paradise" after their respective inspirations.
Explaining his color of choice for the dresses, Tisci said: “I try to find the light in the darkness . . . White has become very strong — when women want to be sexy and romantic at the same time, white is there.” His favorite dress of the collection, covered with hand-cut tulle paillettes, was inspired by his graduation project at Central St. Martins.
