Givenchy: To Audrey with love

Audrey Hepburn is an inspiration for many women and not only in the fashion business. Her work as goodwill ambassador for Unicef is well known! For Hubert de Givenchy Audrey Hepburn was his muze and a great friend. In the fifties and sixties they ruled the world with his elegant designs and her stylish and sweet appearance!

In the Gemeentemuseum The Hague in The Netherlands Givenchy presents an inspiring exhibition on his work and on Audrey Hepburn.

It all started with Audrey visiting Hubert de Givenchy in Paris for her role in Sabrina (1954), a start from a great career for both the actress as the fashion designer.

"Givenchy’s clothes are the only ones I feel myself in. He is more than a designer, he is a creator of personality." 
                                                                                                                                    Audrey Hepburn

The film Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) is the start of the lbd, the little black dress. So elegant, so stylish, every women wanted such a dress. And even in 2017 a little black dress is still a must have for every women.

Many designs of Givenchy are on display at the museum, I love especially his early years. The designer learned from Cristobal Balenciaga: keep it simple!

"To dress a woman is to enhance her beauty.
Trying to make a woman more beautiful is to try to understand her well, for her to be well dressed and above all comfortable in her clothes.
If a woman moves well her gestures will be natural and she will be happy."

Audrey Hepburn is on so many covers and as you know I love cats so I shared this one with you!
 In the eighties and nineties Givenchy used a lot of colours, beads and sequins in his designs.
