Founded in 1952 by Hubert de Givenchy, the french fashion house has during its time, been under the direction of some of the world's most imaginative and creative designers, such as John Galliano and Alexander McQueen. Initially branded as a couture house, 2005 saw the takeover of current Creative Director Riccardo Tisci, who has since then, transformed the classic brand into a cult favorite, mixing gothic prints with romantic cuts and shapes.
