PARIS — The fashion world has lost a giant — figuratively and literally. Count Hubert James Marcel Taffin de Givenchy, the 6-foot, 6-inch French aristocrat who founded the house of Givenchy in 1952, died Saturday at age 91, his partner Philippe Venet said Monday.
Givenchy was best known to the general public as the creator of the film and personal wardrobes of his longtime muse, Audrey Hepburn, in movies including “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “Funny Face.” The actress also inspired his first perfume, L’Interdit.

“As long as [companies] are peopled by humans, there’s always that opportunity [for authenticity.] When that doesn’t happen, it’ll hurt your [brand],” he says. “We’re human beings. Human meaning flesh, being meaning spirit. As long as we have that, there is the opportunity for growth and elevation.” — Pharrell Williams, WWD Original.
