VOGUE ON: HUBERT DE GIVENCHY - DRUSILLA BEYFUS
Vogue on Hubert de Givenchy, by Drusilla Beyfus, recounts how the handsome, aristocratic Givenchy blended the hallowed traditions of haute couture with a modern sensibility. His innovative 1952 debut collection made its mark by presenting separates, then a little-known approach to fashion. He created the most glamourous of evening dresses and developed the influential 'chemise' dress without a waistline. He is also credited with pioneering the princess silhouette, and his name became forever linked with the Sabrina neckline after dressing Hepburn in the eponymous film.
