Givenchy September #2 - Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn

October 12, 2016



Hello my lovelies, I hope you are well. I know what you are thinking, errrr September is gone? and it's October (Awkward). Well I didn't want to leave it unfinished and I thought, so what if it is October i'm still going to call it Givenchy September as that is what I want to call it! Also I am planning the October Designer of the month, so I only thought it was fair to finish this one off first!


So lets talk about all things Givenchy......


Where were we...... Ahh yes, I was going to talk about the relationship Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn shared and it was amazing, I can tell you!


In 1953 this is when the magic began to bloom for Miss Audrey Hepburn. She was a actress who possessed an innate style but she had not found a designer that showed her femininity. It wasn't till Breakfast at Tiffany that provided her a breakthrough and she became, most famous for the Little Black Dress (LBD) which Givenchy designed. This is the most famous LBD of the 20th Century not only does everyone refer to this column dress but it was the dress that Audrey became known for and she wore it with pure elegance!


Givenchy always focused on cuts when it came to designing, he selected superb fabric when it came to picking the fabric for different garments. When Audrey came into Givenchy's life she influenced the way he designed clothes. Ultimately she became the dream muse for Hubert De Givenchy.


At age 25 he became the youngest designer in Parisian fashion, which is amazing, as he achieved so many things in his early career. His credibility expanded with Balenciaga, who became a mentor for Givenchy. He had that much of an influence on him that they collaborated in 1957 where they created the sack. Sack was a loose dress that lacked defined lines and the weight was on the back of the dress.


In 1957 he released a perfume with Audrey Hepburn, she endorsed the perfume as it was especially for her. By the 1960's everything had changed and it was all about ready to wear clothing and that is what was booming at that time. The ready to wear market was drawing attention to women for all the right reasons and I guess people preferred to buy something they could take straight away.


Givenchy brought three things to women's lives, which were: 'Timeless, Femininity and Elegance'
What more could a women simply ask for.....
