In the year 1954, Givenchy pioneered luxurious readymade women’s clothing collection. Among his numerous designs to the world of fashion at that time were; Enveloped dress, and Bag dress. His products were both elegant and audacious. Some of their original designs were made of printed textiles, Matisse, Christian Berard, and Miro inspired them. Givenchy continued to diversify and in 1973 released the “Gentleman Givenchy” menswear line. In 1987 Givenchy joined the French luxury group LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, along with other prestigious names like Dior, Louis Vuitton, Christian Lacroix, and Céline.
