Hubert de Givenchy founded his now internationally renowned fashion brand in 1952. In the same year, he launched his first collection consisting of elegant blouses and light skirts in which architectural lines and simplicity are blended - known today as the "Child of Haute Couture". In 1955, Givenchy presented his first shirtdress, which would make him a celebrated icon amongst the fashion industry. In addition to womenswear, the brand launched the men's line “Givenchy Gentleman” in 1969. The designs are known to unite modernity and tradition, innovation and longstanding know-how.
