Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci links up with Details for its March 2015 issue, talking about ten years at the fashion house and dressing famous friends. Coming to the subject of friends, in particular Kanye West, Tisci talks about dressing Kim Kardashian before other labels gave her their approval following Kimye’s Vogue cover.
Tisci explains, “I dress people even when they don’t have an Oscar nomination or they don’t have an album out. If they’re my friends, I respect them to the end…Look at Kanye and Kim–at the beginning, I was the only one. And she’s a sweet girl. And Kanye and me, we did it together. Every designer is dying to dress her now. I didn’t care what people thought about Kim. In the beginning, I met her because of my respect for Kanye, and then I liked her a lot and we became friends. I got killed because of this. But I didn’t care.” He continues, “That is a friend, you see. And this is why, when they got married, they asked me to dress them. They say, ‘You’ve always been with us. You’ve been a real friend.’ If I like somebody, I like somebody. If I don’t like somebody, I don’t like somebody.” Read more at Details.com.
