Givenchy, founded in 1952 by designer Hubert de Givenchy, is an international luxury brand known for its haute couture, ready-to-wear collections for men and women and fashion accessories. Its iconic little black dress became a rage all over the fashion world after Hollywood actress, Audrey Hepburn wore it in the old classic, "Breakfast at Tiffany's." Hubert de Givenchy retired after forty-three years of fashion design.
Since 2005, Riccardo Tisci has been appointed Artistic Director of the women's haute couture, ready to wear and accessories collections. In 2008, his contract was expanded to menswear and its accessories. Aristocratic and distinctive, sober and mysteriously sensual, he has tenaciously built a coherent, modern universe at Givenchy, firmly anchored in the company's illustrious heritage, but determinedly forward-looking.
