Hubert de Givenchy the great master of Haute Couture

The world of fashion has lost one of its great talents. Hubert de Givenchy was the last of the generation of designers of French haute couture. In this article we commemorate his incredible work that has marked an unforgettable footprint in haute couture.

In the 1950s, Givenchy presented his first collection with unique and innovative pieces, like the Bettina blouse, giving a new direction to elegance with simplicity. In this way he created the dresses with the minimum of seams possible, thus enchanting the woman’s body:

“The dress must follow the body of a woman. It is not the body that must adapt to the dress.”

With this idea, Givenchy showed his admiration for femininity and his particular vision of fashion, which we should all follow.

The French designer marked his fame by creating personalised clothing for princesses and first ladies of high society in the mid-twentieth century, such as Jackie Kennedy or the Duchess of Windsor. His most beloved client was the legendary actress Audrey Hepburn who also shared great admiration for Givenchy

“He is more than a designer, he is a personality creator”.

Hepburn commissioned the French courtier to make the emblematic dresses she wore in her most recognised movies, such as Breakfast in Tiffany, Sabrina and Funny Face.

Givenchy was the couturier of Audrey Hepburn not only in the movies, but also in real life. In her second marriage to Andrea Dotti, Audrey wore a pale pink long-sleeved wool mini-dress, designed by her close friend. Her cute headscarf was made from the same fabric as her beautiful dress, creating an iconic look that was dramatically different from the traditional bridal veil.

Oscar de la Rent Spring 2018 Bridal Collection

For their first bridal collection as creative directors for Oscar de la Renta Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim continued with the late desginer’s legacy and love for flowers. “We kept some Oscar-isms, like sashes and ferns and foliage as a strong base for embroideries, because he loved gardens so much,” Garcia said. “But we’re making it much lighter and more relaxed,” Kim added.
Among floral guipure lace, silk tulle with jasmine embroidery, Chantilly lace with anemone appliqué and stretch silk georgette, there were modern column gowns, ballgowns, a suit with a silver sequin corset and lots of illusion necklines.
The designers surprised everyone with a less conventional bridal look which Kim called “Ode to Sarah Jessica Parker”, with a white denim jacket embroidered with “Just Married” across the back over a white, tea-length tulle ball skirt embroidered with the Oscar de la Renta signature across the hem.
