Video: Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci Talks Couture

New York fashion director Harriet Mays Powell sat down with Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci, the youngest couturier in recent history (he's 33) to talk about couture and his resort collection, which was based on Morocco and David Bowie. And couture, that decadently fabulous season (fall 2009 kicks off next week) is still going strong. "Women buy couture because it's very exclusive," he says. "When you sell a dress, you can sell it once. So you are the only one person owning this dress in the entire world." Check out the spring 2009 dress that took seamstresses two and a half weeks to sew by hand (and costs 18,000 euros).
