Iconic French designer Hubert de Givenchy passes away
One of the most celebrated couturiers of his time, Hubert de Givenchy’s family has announced that the designer passed away on Saturday, March 10.
Aged 91, the French designer and aristocrat founded the house of Givenchy in 1952. His earliest collection was called ‘Separates’ which gave high society women an opportunity to choose from sets and actually style their outfits for the first time. Hubert’s personality and naturally the house’s aesthetics are synonymous with classy elegance and aristocratic good manners. His work has always been a go-to choice of influential personalities like Audrey Hepburn, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, Princess Grace of Monaco and the Duchess of Windsor.
