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
Audrey Hepburn and Hubert de Givenchy were tied by a unique friendship. Givenchy was fascinated by the unconventional nature of the Hollywood actress. Already at her first meeting she distinguished herself by her persistency, when Givenchy was supposed to tailor the clothes for the film Sabrina. Although he first refused, Audrey invited him to dinner – which was very unusual for the time back then. Finally, she could convince the couturier and a few clothes became the foundation of a deep friendship.
After the great success, Audrey told all film studios that Givenchy was her personal tailor. The first collaboration between an actress and a designer. He also curates the exhibition “To Audrey With Love”. Some of the most beautiful creations of Hubert de Givenchy, which she wore in her films or on occasions, are shown. Beautifully arranged with flowers and quotations. A tribute to the friendship to Audrey Hepbrun.
The exhibition “To Audrey With Love” can still be seen until 26 March 2017 at the Gemeente Museum in Den-Haag.
