Hubert De Givenchy is a French aristocrat and fashion designer. Having been impressed by the 1937 World's Fair in Paris, Givenchy decided he wanted to work in fashion, and founded the House of Givenchy in 1952. At only 25 he was the youngest designer on the progressive fashion scene in Paris, seeking to distinguish himself by innovation, in contrast to the more conservative designs of other contemporary designers. Givenchy has had clients as varied as Jacqueline Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn, whose professional and personal wardrobe was largely designed by him.

Legendary French Fashion Designer, Hubert de Givenchy has died at the age of 91. The fashion icon was most popular for creating famous looks for the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly & Jackie Kennedy.

He was responsible for Hepburn’s famous “little black dress” in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. He also founded the famous fashion brand Givenchy.

The company confirmed his passing through a statement on their Instagram page. They wrote;

The House of Givenchy is sad to report the passing of its founder Hubert de Givenchy, a major personality of the world of French Haute Couture and a gentleman who symbolized Parisian chic and elegance for more than half a century. His enduring influence and his approach to style reverberates to this day. He will be greatly missed.
