Associated Press reports:

PARIS (AP) — French fashion house Givenchy says it is to dress Madonna for her upcoming “Sticky and Sweet” world tour.

Givenchy spokeswoman Caroline Deroche-Pasquier says venerated label Givenchy Couture has made the pop star two ensembles. In an e-mail Tuesday, she said one is to be worn during the show’s opening number.

It’s not immediately clear if other designers will also dress the star for the tour.

Madonna has a long history of working with French designers. Frenchman Jean-Paul Gaultier was behind the pointy cone bras that were the hallmarks of Madonna’s 1990 “Blonde Ambition” tour.

Givenchy’s design team is headed by an Italian, Riccardo Tisci. He is know for his gothic-influenced pieces and use of dark fabrics.

I’m a sucker for diversity.

So I’m definitely happy about this new development.

Italian fashion house, Romeo Gigli, is hiring African designers with a dream.

They’ll be creating a menswear collection–which Gigli is developing to add “an international influence to its clothes,” according to a Reuters report.

When the six young folk from Ghana, Senegal and Kenya join the creative team at Gigli later this year, they’ll be hashing out a 2009/2010 autumn/winter collection.

It includes 25-30 pieces and will be called “Romeo Gigli Lab.”

The big collection reveal is set for January along and will be presented with Romeo Gigli’s featured collection.

The fashion house is also looking to hire aspiring designers from Jordan and China in the future.
