Riccardo Tisci and the international fashion aword

The Council of Fashion Designers of America has picked up its winners.

Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez won the main category: womenswear designers of the year. The other winners are Thom Browne, Phillip Lim, Vera Wang, Oscar de La Renta, Suno, Public School, Pamela Love, Tim Blanks e Colleen Attwood. 

And that’s not it, among them there is an Italian designer who won the International Award: it’s Riccardo Tisci. Here it is a profile of the winner.

Riccardo Tisci was born in a small town near Como, Cermenate, in 1974. In 2005, shortly after completing his studies at Central Saint Martins in London, he was appointed creative director for womens collections heading one of the most historic fashion house in Paris. He was not even 30 years old. It was immediately clear he was following the path of Alexander McQueen and John Galliano, and this must have a had a deep meaning for a young designer with an already articulated world to tell.

Riccardo Tisci has not changed much over the years, his work has evolved while remaining very consistent with his vocabulary and persona. According to Carine Roitfeld, founder of CR Book and former editor of  Vogue Paris, the only thing that really changed is his fluency in French. When he arrived in Paris – less than a decade ago – he didn’t speak any French. In 2008, he took over the creative direction also of man collections and accessories, exploding his street-à-porter attitude.

Last May he co-chaired such an event as the annual gala of the MET and a month later or so he got the news of the International Award by CFDA.

Eventually, on stage, the redhead actress Jessica Chastain handed him his prize.
