I found an image on some blog that's tagged as Givenchy/Alexander McQueen, but not 100% certain it really is.

The picture is from Alexander's Givenchy SS98 RTW collection

There is a good picture of Kate from the show here (sorry it's too big to post)

Also MagFan sorry if I'm reposting you I can't see your images for some reason!

The first is from Spring Summer 1999 Couture
The whole collection is here although it's mislabeled - I just know it's from SS99 HC because the outfit Nadja's in (with the fan) was on the cover of L'Officiel Haute Couture SS99 (here)

The second two are from AW97 couture - there's a picture on elle.com of Carla from this collection

Everyone feel free to post the collections from that flickr - I think they have five or six maybe - otherwise I'll post them as soon as I figure out how!

Sorry noonfashion!!

I've spent ages looking for Alexander's Givenchy RTW collections and so far corbis.co.in is the only one I've seen to post them (apart from the two on style.com)

Unfortunately on corbis you have to buy the pictures - I sent in a request today asking how much an image costs so I'll let you know when they reply

I assume you're looking for copies that have each individual outfit but if you aren't there are some L'Officiel scans on jalou (I'll post some so you can see if you like them)

Fall Winter 1997 RTW (this is all they printed of this collection)

It's beautiful and interesting, but I don't think they screamed Audrey Hepburn as much as fans wanted them to.

To be honest Givenchy has battled wiht an identity since Hubert vacated the brand. It's only been during the time of Tisci has it begun to find a brand identity and become relevant again.

Does anyone else feel like that 98/99 collection was just shown all over the runways for FW11?? Mugler, Prada, Armani Prive....

Does anyone have any images from the Spring 2001 couture show? I've been able to find at least one photo from every other show but I can't find any for that one!!

I was kind of under the impression that he hadn't done it for some reason but I found a post on the couture-in-editorials thread that had Givenchy SS01 HC (here - it's called The Fashion(UK) Spring Summer 2001)

^ That collection wasn't photographed because it wasn't formally presented. The show was canceled beforehand and I believe the only people who were allowed to view it were some press and clients.
