PARIS — When Cristóbal Balenciaga closed his Paris fashion house in 1968, he and jewelry designer Jean Michel Schlumberger marched American society icon Bunny Mellon across the Avenue George V, delivering a crucial client to the house of Givenchy — and sparking what would become a lifelong friendship with its founding couturier.
Hubert de Givenchy remembers exactly how Mellon looked that day.
