Givenchy, born in 1927, was one of a handful who studied at the knees of the greats in the creative hotbed that was postwar Paris. He worked alongside Pierre Balmain and Christian Dior at the house of Lucien Lelong, he then honed his skills as an assistant to Elsa Schiaparelli. In 1952, Givenchy founded his own house, with an accent on polished separates for a modern-day woman. The look was one of understated chic-feminine, but not flamboyant.
Riccardo Tisci is the current creative director at Givenchy and has been steadily winning over the critics by combining his love of dark romanticism with a street wear edge, whilst retaining the refinement of a Parisian couture house. Givenchy has gained a strong celebrity following with Rhianna , Kanye West and Liv Tyler among them.
