Hubert James Taffin de Givenchy began his non conforming and iconic French fashion house at a young age creating romantic designs adored the world over.
He founded his infamous line through his close friendship with the best dressed women of that era including Jackie Kennedy, Princess Grace of Monaco, and Elizabeth Taylor who were always keen to be the designer’s ambassadors. It was a lifetime friendship with Audrey Hepburn that launched Givenchy onto the world stage. His creations featured on Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Sabrina and Funny Face and formed a friendship with Hepburn that lasted 40 years.
Italian designer Riccardo Tisci, a relatively unknown designer when appointed creative director of Givenchy in 2005, has preserved the unwavering design aesthetic to build a coherent, modern universe of Givenchy. If Audrey Hepburn, with her unfussy femininity, was the poster child for Hubert de Givenchy , then Tisci’s darkly romantic, slightly melancholic and innovative designs are drawing in the modern day beauties.
The fashion house boldly embodies French elegance and delivers a certain distinctive, sober and sensual dazzle to the haute couture.
