Coinciding with the 14th anniversary of 9/11, Riccardo Tisci brought Givenchy to Pier 26 in New York City and, for the first time ever, turned his show into a public spectacle. With such an occasion in mind, one might have expected a big show with musical support by Kanye West or Rihanna (two figures he is both close with), but instead Tisci opted for a calm and meditated show that he created together with artist Marina Abramovic.

"The audience—the seated professionals and celebrities, and the standing public—were made to wait and watch for a good hour, absorbing the spectacle of blue sky and white and pink-tinted clouds as Abramovic’s slow-moving performers, dressed in white shirts and black pants, acted out simple, strenuous, and repetitive rituals—one with a ladder, another with a tree, a third with a faucet gushing water. Stop! Abramovic seemed to be saying. Slow down and feel something! And meanwhile, in the foreground, the nonstop parade of personalities kept coming, and kept on being photographed and Instagrammed."

This marks Tisci's 10th year at Givenchy and it has been incredible to see how far he has brought the luxury brand. Coinciding with the opening of a first New York City flagship store this month, Tisci celebrates his signature aesthetic that he has build over the last 10 years with the new Spring 2016 collection.

Take a trip back through the past decade of Tisci's work with our 10-point rundown of his tenure at Givenchy.
