Did you know Audrey Hepburn's iconic black dress in the film, Breakfast at Tiffany's, was designed by Givenchy?

"Givenchy's clothes are the only ones in which I feel myself".

"To dress a woman is to make her handsome", Givenchy once said.

The French president's office praised Givenchy as a designer whose name became an emblem for French elegance, with one principle: "to respect and celebrate the woman's body".

The House of Givenchy on Monday called its late founder "a major personality of the world of French Haute Couture and a gentleman who symbolized Parisian chic and elegance for more than half a century". He will be greatly missed.

"According to BBC:" Givenchy came from an aristocratic background, and worked alongside the then unknown Pierre Balmain and Christian Dior after World War Two.He was employed by the avant-garde designer Elsa Schiaparelli before leaving to found his own fashion house in 1952.

Born into a noble French family in 1927, Givenchy moved to Paris aged 17 to study fashion, and debuted his first collection aged just 24. ', Proving that a life well lived is a life with a objective fulfilled, as his Midas touch clothed some of the most attractive women of the golden era of haute couture - Bettina Graziani, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Gloria Guinness, Mona von Bismarck, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis amongst others.

A towering man of elegance and impeccable manners, he forged close friendships with his famous clients, from Hollywood screen sirens of the likes of Elizabeth Taylor and Lauren Bacall to women of state, including Jackie Kennedy and Princess Grace of Monaco.

In recent years, the label has dressed everyone from Jordan's HM Queen Rania al Abdullah, Margot Robbie and Meryl Streep. After 36 years of founding the label, Givenchy sold it to LVHM but still remained involved in the creative designing till his retirement in 1995.

"The definition of a true gentleman that will stay with me forever", she added.
