Well, it's been a while since I've posted anything about designers.... However, I felt Riccardo Tisci's couture collection for Givenchy AW10 was a perfect place to begin. His use of ostrich feathers, lace, fur and leathers is not only breathtaking but elegantly luxurious. His inspiration; the painter Frida Kahlo and her relationship with religion, sensuality and her battle with spinal pain. Like every couture artist each pearl and each crystal has been sewn with a purpose and as always the gowns are utterly inspiring.
