Fashion World mourns for the death of Hubert de Givenchy, the favorite designer of Audrey Hepburn, who is best known for creating the iconic “little black dress” she carried in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”.
The famed founder of the fashion house Givenchy breathed the last time at the age of 91.
In a statement from the fashion brand, he is described as “a gentleman that symbolized Parisian chic and elegance for more than half a century.”
The talented creator retired in 1995, and his designer chair was inherited by John Galliano, Alexander McQueen and Julien McDonald. From 2005 until last year, Creative Director of Givenchy was Riccardo Tisci, who recently officially took over the rug of the Burberry brand. Currently Claire White Kohler is in charge of continuing the Givenchy story.
