Hubert de Givenchy was born in 1927 in France to a French/Italian aristocratic family.  Hubert’s passion for fashion started at the very young age thanks to his grandmother and mother, who got him interested in dressing up in costumes.  By the age of 10, he was drawing up sketches on his school notebooks, which later helped open the doors into the most famous and high end fashion houses.

In 1952, Givenchy opened his own Maison de Couture and is an immediate success.  A year later, everything changes when the actress Audrey Hepburn became the brands ambassador and thus begins a 40 year friendship between the two.  In 1954, Givenchy designed a women’s “ready to wear” luxury line and became a household name for the rich and famous.  In 1974 he created the menswear line “Givenchy Gentleman”

In 1957 the fashion house debuted their first fragrance L’Interdit, created especially for Hepburn.  At first, Hepburn forbid them to market the perfume, stating that it was created for her, but later accepted, and she became the first fragrance muse in the history of perfumes.  Monsieur de Givenchy for men followed in 1959 and then Vetiver Water, which became the exclusive fragrance of the designer.  In 1970 Givenchy III for women was launched, named after the address of Givenchy Couture House in Paris.  5 years later Givenchy Gentleman for men was introduced followed by Eau de Givenchy for ladies, Ysatis, Amarige, Organza and Ange and Demon for women as well as Givenchy PI, Givenchy Pour Homme, Play and Play Sport for men.
