The ticket giveaway is a little bit different than expected: Rather than 820 public tickets (since 280 were set aside for fashion schools), the number of people receiving invitations will be cut in half so that each recipient can bring a friend. Plus, the entry form required an address so that an additional 100 tickets can be distributed to those who live near the show's still-unannounced venue.
So with that in mind—and to distract ourselves from constantly refreshing our inbox— let's theorize where this mystery location might be. Creative director Riccardo Tisci dropped a couple of hints while speaking to WWD recently, like that the show will take place on the street. He's also previously mentioned that, with help from artist Marina Abramovic, the presentation will take its date (September 11th) into consideration as well. With a sunset start time in mind, we're guessing that a stunning view of One World Trade Center in twilight is in order.
"You know, fashion is amazing and very exclusive," Tisci told the paper about his dream for the show. "But [I've long thought] one day I would love to do a show where anybody—which is the reality—could be a part of it." To that end, the paper writes that Givenchy will host "simulcast screenings at various outposts around Manhattan," also yet to be disclosed.
Bragging rights go to whoever correctly guesses the show's secret location in the comments section.
