‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ Designer, Givenchy Dies at 91
For decades, Hubert de Givenchy has been a dominant force in the fashion industry. Now, 54 years after entering the world of fashion when he was only 17, he has passed on.
Givenchy began training under Parisian designer, Jacques Fath before launching his own label in 1952. His initial collection became globally relevant with silk prints and embroidered gowns. One of his most famous creations was Audrey Hepburn’s little black dress in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. He also styled Hepburn’s outfits in “Funny Face” and “How to Steal a Million”.
Givenchy is survived by his lifelong partner, Philippe Venet.
