Tisci said, “he’d had her image in the back of his mind when he was designing the Spring 2014 collection, a mash-up of African and Japanese influences,” Matthew Schneier stated.
Givenchy + Badu can’t go wrong. Fashion + Music even better!

These are some of my favorite quotes from Tisci on Badu, Givenchy’s newest ad campaign, as well as racial diversity in fashion…
On Badu: “She’s one of the most stylish women I’ve met in my life.” “She’s got such a good sense of proportion, of colors.”
On Bethann Hardison and Iman’s Diversity Campaign (racism on runways): “Me, I was one of the persons who ended up not being touched by this. I discovered Joan Smalls, I discovered Maria [Borges]. I discovered a lot of black girls, and I’ve been always supporting them. For me, I grew up in a family and I grew up in a culture, an education, that we all are the same.”
