Having been at the very height of fashion since its conception in 1952, this world-renowned fashion brand hardly needs an introduction. Leaving his birthplace in Beauvais for the bright lights of Paris in 1944, Hubert de Givenchy studied at the École des Beaux-Arts, working alongside and designing for Jacques Fath, Robert Piguet, Lucien Lelong and Elsa Schiaparelli along the way. Having perfected the art of haute couture, the master in the making set about creating his own label and The House of Givenchy was established in 1952. A few years later, an unrivalled line of prêt-à-porter garments sporting the label "Givenchy Université", was launched and met with immediate success. Throughout his career, Givenchy enjoyed a working relationship with iconic Hollywood beauty, Audrey Hepburn. Together the designer and muse changed the look of the leading lady from curvaceous to waif and willowy, complemented by garments that created those perfect lines. The House of Givenchy is characterised by streamlined, uncluttered silhouettes and their innovative haute couture collections. Retiring from his empire in 1995, Hubert de Givenchy was succeeded by up and coming British designers: John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Julien MacDonald, all non-conformists to fashion, just like the man himself. Forward looking fashion and classic design style combined - Givenchy.
Givenchy - effortlessly elegant, classic style.
