Farewell to Legendary Fashion Designer Hubert de Givenchy

Founder and designer of the French luxury fashion and perfume house, Givenchy, Hubert de Givenchy has passed away at 91 years old. Famous for (among other things) the little black dress his muse and close friend Audrey Hepburn wears at the start of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and the dress Jacqueline Kennedy wore at her husband’s funeral, Givenchy’s designs were hailed at the time as alternatives to Dior’s. The house of Givenchy paid tribute to their founder in a statement, saying he was “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.” Read more at the Guardian.
