His rise in the fashion industry and the rise of Hollywood star Audrey Hepburn is almost parallel. She wore clothes/ designs of Givenchy in most of her movies. Another famous lady, Jacqueline Kennedy used to wear clothes designed by Givenchy exclusively. His first perfume was dedicated to Audrey Hepburn and was introduced in 1957 by the name of L’Interdit and Le De Givenchy.
Meeting the famous Audrey Hepburn in 1953 was a game-changing event for Givenchy. Hepburn, in the long run, ended up both a diplomat for the Givenchy label and a loyal friend. Indeed, five years later in 1952, Givenchy started his very own products; rue Alfred de Vigny Maison, de Couture at No8, on the Monceau Plain; which won him praises for launching his first collection
Givenchy’s relationship with the masters of the industry proceeded. The impact of his association with Cristobal Balenciaga, for instance, is reflected in a considerable lot of the Givenchy collections.
