Hubert de Givenchy was born in Beauvais, France, in 1927. He attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and the Faculté de Droit in Paris before going to work with Jacques Fath at the age of 17.

For Givenchy focused on a clean, classic silhouette instead of embellishments on his designs. The clothes appeared simple and easy to adapt, and flattered many different body types. Like Balenciaga, Givenchy knew a secret: make a woman look fabulous no matter how she’s shaped, and she’ll become a lifelong customer.
