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.
