Givenchy’s creative director Clare Waight Keller gave fans the chance to sit side by side with industry insiders and influencers and watch the Givenchy SS19 show.
As? Well, a post on the official Givenchy account on Instagram described the nature of the competition. “Win your ticket: find 4G tickets for the chance to win a ticket for the # GivenchySS19 show and be present on our official account.”
First, the fans had to find one of the 5000 hidden stickers between London and Paris – walls, street lamps, street signs – then take a picture and post it on their Insta feed. Once tagged #GivenchyFamily, the brand will choose three winners to watch the show and see their photo on the official feed.

What does this mean for the brand, though? Waight Keller, who previously held the role of Chloé, but took over the role of Givenchy after Ricard Tisci left after 12 years for Burberry, is an expert fashion designer of the Paris Fashion Week, but recently conquered a wider audience thanks to the royal wedding between Harry and Meghan
Drawing Meghan Markle’s outfit, he introduced both Waight Keller and Givenchy to a younger audience, which perhaps this Insta-led competition is trying to mirror. With brands such as Off-White, Supreme and Balenciaga that govern the internet and the fashion industry, perhaps this is a transition from the prestigious house to the contemporary brand.
