Founder Of Givenchy, Hubert de Givenchy Dies At 91

Givenchy moved from his hometown of Beauvais to Paris to study fashion when he was just 17 years old, and learned the craft under fashion greats like Jacques Fath, Robert Piguet and Elsa Schiaparelli.

Givenchy's partner, Philippe Venet, announced his death via the Givenchy fashion house, saying the fashion icon died in his sleep. "Which is very helpful, when you're making a movie or have a hard scene, at least you know you look right". "Then the rest wasn't so tough anymore".

His streamlined designs also appealed to the royal elite including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis who sported his wears at many high profile moments during the JFK administration. Following Sabrina, Givenchy worked with Hepburn again in her films Funny Face, How To Steal A Million and most notably, Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Long before Givenchy was a go-to red carpet fashion and beauty house for celebs like Kim Kardashian, Beyonce and Cate Blanchett, the French couturier and nobleman founded his eponymous label in postwar Paris to cater to well-to-do women. Givenchy even had asked his friend admirers to donate to the children's charity UNICEF instead of sending him flowers.
