On Friday 11 September, fourteen years after the World Trade Center attacks,
Givenchy and La Mode en Image staged the most eagerly awaited catwalk show of New York Fashion Week SS2016.

Creative director Ricardo Tisci and his Serbian artist friend Marina Abramovic, famed for her experimental shows, conjured up a performance designed as a hymn to life, love and diversity. In an open-air set built from recycled wood and rusty sheet metal, on the Hudson River with the Freedom Tower in the background, guests were treated to a spectacular fantasy show, with music drawn from different cultures and religions.
