Hubert de Givenchy founded his namesake fashion house specializing in Haute Couture and ready-to-wear in 1952. No sooner did it open that Givenchy earned reputation for breaking with the fashion codes of its time. Today, the house is synonymous with aristocratic elegance, sesuality and fresh romanticism. Its legacy continues through the modern approch of its British Artistic Director, Clare Waight Keller, who was appointed in 2017 to design all Haute Couture and Ready-to-Wear collections for Women's and Men's.
