The world of cutting edge high fashion may not be as competitive as we all think. Ricardo Tisci just roped in fellow designer Donatella Versace to star in his Fall2015 campaign for Givenchy. It’s safe to say that this is one crossover that we did not see coming! Tisci himself also appears in the campaign which was styled by CarineRoitfield and photographed by Mert& Marcus.
Tisci broke the news in an Instagram post stating: “So proud and honored to introduce my new ultimate icon : Donatella Versace…. FW 15 Givenchy Family Campaign
MORE TO COME SOON!” RT

Donatella also shared the image via the Official twitter account for Versace along with the caption: ‘For my talented friend Riccardo. Together we break fashion boundaries today! – DV’ FW 15 @givenchy Family Campaign
It may be unheard of for a designer to appear in the ad campaign of a rival brand, but seems like in this case friendship trumps competition. Kudos to both designers for putting friendship first and also for their mesmerizing campaign.
