Each fashion season, there are always a few noteworthy change-ups that capture our attention and have us waiting in suspense. For example, we are over the moon that designer Riccardo Tisci will present his collection for Givenchy in NYC this month, instead of Paris. As if that wasn’t a big enough break in routine, today the iconic fashion house announced that 1200 seats at the runway show will be open to the public. Yes, that’s right fashion afficionados, this is your chance not only attend a fashion show—which traditionally only allows industry heavies, retailers, editors and of course, celebrities—but to experience an event that could potentially shape the future of fashion and the rules in which it is presented.
Using social media to announce the details on how to get tickets, Givenchy posted this Instagram today—sure to instigate a full-on frenzy when the majority of the first-come/first-served tickets are released into the ether tomorrow.

More fashion news came today with the announcement that Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen will present The Row in Paris—as opposed to their usual stomping grounds in NYC. This is not shocking since Mary-Kate is married to a Frenchman, and we can only assume she spends part of her year living the expat dream, strolling the Left Bank in all her layered glory. Their Melrose Place boutique is right around the corner from TZR headquarters, so we keep close tabs on the coveted line (read: lunch-hour power browsing).
