Givenchy Cologne

The house of Givenchy was founded in 1952 by designer Hubert de Givenchy. He was a member of Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture et du Pret-a-Porter. Givenchy is a luxury French brand of clothing, accessories, perfumes and cosmetics. When France is liberated from German occupation, Hubert de Givenchy moves to Paris and begins to study with Jacques Fath. He continues his training under the guidance of Robert Piguet, and then becomes Lucien Lelong's assistant after Christian Dior's departure in 1947.

Throughout the years the Givenchy brand diversified its activities. 1973 is a milestone year, as Givenchy enters the realm of menswear, with the launch of the "Gentleman Givenchy" line. The brand also expands its distribution network internationaly to many countries, in particular to the Far East and to the United States. Givenchy became part of French luxury group including Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, Christian Lacroix and Celine. After Monsieur de Givenchy's retirement in 1995, John Galliano, graduate of London's St Martin's School of Art and thrice elected "Designer of the Year" by the British Fashion Council, became the new designer for Givenchy's Haute-couture and luxury ready-to-wear lines. In October 1996 Alexander McQueen, also graduate of London's St Martin's School of Art, is appointed to succeed him. In March 2001, Julien Macdonald was named Artistic Director for Women. In this role, Macdonald oversees the design for Haute-Couture, women's ready-to-wear and accessories.
