According to BBC, his partner Philippe Venet confirmed the news to the AFP news agency on Monday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ”The House of Givenchy is sad to report the passing of its founder Hubert de Givenchy, a major personality of the world of French Haute Counture and a gentleman who symbolized Parisian chic and elegance for more than half a century. His enduring influence and his approach to style reverberates to this day. He will be greatly missed,” a statement read from De Givenchy’s Instagram. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The designer kicked off his career in the late ’40s before opening his own design house in Paris in 1952. One year later, Givenchy met Audrey Hepburn, who would later become one of the most prominent advocates of the fashion brand and a longtime friend of the designer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From there, the designer went on to build a luxury fashion powerhouse, as he was described as “the most aristocratic of French designers.” His fame extended a span of four decades until he stepped down in 1995. But, his fashion empire stood tall, and expanded across several industries, including furnishing fabrics, hotel interiors, and even a car, as he was succeeded by some of fashion’s best. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now in 66 years since its inception, Givenchy remains one of the most popular among Hollywood’s biggest celebs, from Future and Kanye West to Beyoncé and Madonna. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In honor of the life and accomplishments of Givenchy, let’s take a look at a few of our favorite Givenchy designs, as we send our condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Givenchy.
