Hubert De Givenchy founded his namesake label in 1952 in Paris, France with its very first flagship opening on Avenue George V. Working closely with Master Couturier Cristobal Balenciaga, Givenchy was responsible for creating some of the most iconic couture looks in the history of fashion. Jackie Kennedy, Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlene Dietrich were dedicated clients. However it was the relationship with Audrey Hepburn that catapulted Givenchy into the spotlight. Clare Waight Keller was appointed as Creative Director in February 2017 with her first collection set to debut for Resort 2017.
