Givenchy Party Milan Fashion Week 2015
At the fourth day of the Milano fashion week I worked on the most awaited event of the season: the Givenchy party to celebrate Riccardo Tisci and his ten years at the Maison along with the opening of the first Givenchy boutique in Via Sant’Andrea 9 in Milan. When I got the call sheet (the email were my agency gives me the working appointment for the day after) I was very surprised to know that the party was going to take place in one of my favorite abandoned buildings in town: the Cristalleria dei fratelli Livellara. I’ve dreamed about this building and it’s possible restoration for years! It’s a former crystal factory from 1935 that looks like the physical interpretation of a Antonio Sant’Elia ( the Italian futuristic architect that drew the future but died too young to built it) dream. At the beginning of summer, the heir of this crumbling property decided to open it to the public as a bar and event area with the evocative name Spirit de Milan. The Fashion world has long whiskers and immediately put its paws on it. Is was a perfect setting for the visionary party that had everything you can imagine between a circus, a gay pride, a sadomaso rave and a pop concert (even Nicky Minaj was on stage). Nothing was left behind!!
But I must say…. it was worth the effort!
