Givenchy Spring/Summer 2016.

My instagram and snapchat is flooded with updates from the New York Fashion Week SS16 and all I could wish was to be present for these shows.
For those of you who lack an insight to the fashion weeks that take place all around the world, there's more to these shows than designer clothes and celebrity show-stoppers. There's the music that has to be played during the show, the props on the models and the whole set-up that holds much importance.
The show of Givenchy Spring/Summer 2016 was a tribute to the tragic bombings that took place a decade ago and was popularly known as the 9/11 attack. For the first time in so many years, Givenchy's show was held in New York instead of Paris to celebrate the new store opening on Madison Avenue.
Givenchy's show was immaculate not only because of the clothes but because Riccardo Tisci made sure that everything was gratifying.
The music was combined from six different cultures and religions so as to unite the world and create a magic on the ramp. When we talk about the set, you all should be aware that the whole set was made up of recycled materials.
The best aspect of the show was the work of Pat McGrath on the models. There's makeup and then there is the 3D- detailing. Masks which took more than 5 hours to be made were adorned with pearls, appliqu├ęs, lace and layers of jewels which gave a romantic look.
A lot of drama was seen to take place at the show when the famous Victoria's Secret model Candice Swanepoel fell and landed on her hands. But the model kept her cool, regained her composure and gracefully completed the show.
The show was adored by all and Tisci got everyone head over heels for his collection.
