The haute couture house Givenchy, which began as a fashion house founded by stylist Hubert de Givenchy in 1952, joined the LVMH group in 1988 and has become a world-renowned global luxury brand: fashion, perfumes, ready-to-wear porter, leather goods, jewelry, etc.

Hubert de Givenchy (1927 - 2018) is famous for having designed most of Audrey Hepburn's personal and professional wardrobe, as well as clothes for clients such as Jacqueline Kennedy. He was named to the International Best Dressed of Fame list in 1970. He started his career with several designers but, since the beginning of his career, he has had Cristóbal Balenciaga as a mentor and idol, who has supported, encouraged and financed his work.

Exiled in the United States during World War II, after returning to Paris, Elsa Schiaparelli hired the young Givenchy, who became, in 1947, her first assistant, before being appointed artistic director of the Place Vendome Schiaparelli boutique. Hubert de Givenchy then designed this dress at the beginning of his career, a few years before creating the famous brand that bears his name.

Quality designs, made by renowned French stylists, are increasingly sought after by collectors or aficionados of luxury brands.
