Parisian fashion house Givenchy offers an innovative approach to elegance, sensuality and fresh romanticism. With the famous Audrey Hepburn’s famous black Givenchy dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the luxury brand continues to create iconic pieces that outlasts. The House of Givenchy was founded by Hubert de Givenchy. Givenchy left his hometown Beauvais at the young age of 17 to take an apprenticeship at a couture house. In 1952, he founded his namesake luxury brand Givenchy on Rue Alfred de Vigny in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. He presented an original point of view with his first collection Les Séparables, among are free-flowing skirts, elegant blouses that integrated architectural silhouettes. Famous models became the muse of the brand following its enormous success. And Hubert de Givenchy was the first high fashion designer to create a ready-to-wear clothing line. In 1953, he met the person who he had always looked up to, Cristobal Balenciaga, and became close friends with him. Balenciaga and Givenchy both launched their line collections in New York during a charity gala in 1956. The brand had since experienced rapid growth. Ricardo Tisci became House of Givenchy artistic director from 2005 – 2017. His dark but sexy aesthetic became an addition to the house’s core design and extending its chromatic palette. In 2017, British fashion designer Clare Wate Keller stepped in as the first female artistic director of the House of Givenchy. Keller presents a new evolution for Givenchy which radiates her perspective of the world where men and women are alike and translates the house’s dark, romantic hues into experimental cult pieces which includes the iconic Antigona and Pandora bags, and an array of Givenchy clothing for men and women.
