Riccardo Tisci Responds to Dior Rumors

It looks as though Riccardo Tisci may have dropped out of the race to fill John Galliano's position at Dior. In the latest issue of Interview magazine, Tisci is interviewed by Donatella Versace (and is also photographed for an editorial, see it here) and in the interview, he tells Donatella how he feels about possibly replacing John Galliano at Dior. According to him, he feels as though he doesn't want to leave Givenchy because he has worked so hard to give it his own personal stamp, so it would be hard for him to leave now.

Donatella Versace: "Now I must ask you, do you have new ideas for Givenchy, or something new for Riccardo Tisci? I think you know what I mean." [laughs]

Riccardo Tisci: "Yes, I know what you mean. You mean what happened at Dior. I don't know what will happen. Sincerely, I feel sorry for John. But for this moment I am leaving aside all the gossip of 'I am going here, I am going there,' because there is a lot of gossip circulating and there always will be. I will tell you, in this moment, I am very happy at Givenchy and it is a moment in which I am bringing the game to the next level. So I tell you, I feel at home. It's as if it were my son. I don't know how to explain it. It would be very difficult for me to leave."

Donatella Versace: "It's like your child, there."

Riccardo Tisci: "Absolutely. Because I arrived here, with a destroyed house, with nothing. I had to do everything very slowly. And with a little team and a great president, we achieved a lot. I am happy here. For now, it is still Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, and I think that it will be for a long time, because it will be difficult to evict me from my house. I feel good here!" [laughs]
