Hubert de Givenchy founded his
namesake fashion house specializing in Haute Couture and ready-to-wear in 1952.
No sooner did it open than Givenchy earned a reputation for breaking with the
fashion codes of its time.
Today, Givenchy remains synonymous
with the dual notions of fresh modernity and aristocratic elegance, a tribute
to the talents of Monsieur Givenchy’s successors, in chronological order: John
Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Julien MacDonald, Riccardo Tisci and, most recently, Clare Waight Keller.
In June 2020, the iconic House opened a fresh chapter in its history by appointing designer Matthew M. Williams as Creative Director for women’s and men’s collections.
