Hubert de Givenchy was one of the most important fashion designers of the 20th Century. He founded his fashion house in 1952 and dressed some of the most important women of the day.  Audrey Hepburn was his most famous muse.  He trained with the iconic designers  Jacques Fath, Pierre Balmain,  Christian Dior, and Elsa Schiaparelli. 

The House of Givenchy was split in 1981, with the perfume line going to Veuve Clicquot, while the fashion branch was acquired by LVMH in 1989. LVMH eventually acquired the perfume business as well.  Givenchy retired in 1995 and passed in 2018 at age 91.  Subsequent designers for the house include John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Riccardo Tisci and the current head of design Claire Waight Keller.
