Hubert de Givenchy
Having worked as a stylist with some of the most influential couturiers of his time, Hubert de Givenchy opened his own couture house in 1952.
In 1953 he met Audrey Hepburn, who was to have a great influence on his life as she came to represent his ideal woman. Their close friendship gave way to a creative partnership in the excellence of traditional Haute Couture lasting more than 40 years.
Over the years the company has diversified into luxury ready-to-wear for women, menswear and fashion accessories. Givenchy became a member of the LVMH group in 1988. In 1995, Hubert de Givenchy retired after forty-three years of fashion design.
Today, Givenchy is an international luxury brand, known worldwide for its Haute Couture, ready-to-wear collections for men and women and fashion accessories. The house boldly embodies French elegance.
Riccardo Tisci presented his first Haute Couture Collection for Givenchy on July, 7th 2005.
