Givenchy is a French luxury label founded by Count Hubert James Marcel Taffin de Givenchy. Its first collection debuted under the Givenchy name at 8 rue Alfred-de-Vigny, in Paris in 1952. The label is renowned for its haute couture clothing, accessories, and perfume. Since Hubert de Givenchy's retirement, Givenchy is owned by LVMH and the house served as a launching pad for many popular modern designers, such as John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, and Julien McDonald.
