Hubert de Givenchy

"The dress must follow the body of the woman, not the body of the woman following the shape of the dress."
The Givenchy line, founded in 1952 by designer Hubert de Givenchy, has always been synonymous with chic. Hubert de Givenchy started out by attending the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. As an early designer, Givenchy worked alongside Pierre Balmain and Christian Dior at Lucien Lelongs design studio. He also worked five years for Elsa Schiaparelli who along with Coco Chanel dominated fashion between the two World Wars. Working with this avant garde designer inspired Hubert de Givenchy to open his first atelier and also is said to have helped to ignite the great innovativeness that Givenchy was known for in his early career. Always known for being ahead of his time, Givenchys clothing features haute couture and ready-to-wear mens and womens fashions.

Givenchys designs have always been highly admired. Most famously by patron Audrey Hepburn who was a dedicated fan and wore his clothing almost exclusively in her films. How to Steal a Million and Breakfast at Tiffanys are two of MyCloset.coms favorites to view Givenchy designs. Other famous patrons included Grace Kelly, Babe Paley, Dolores Guinness, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, the Duchess of Windsor, and the entire Kennedy family, who famously wore Givenchy clothing to the funeral of J.F.K.

Although Hubert de Givenchy retired in 1995, the success of his line lives on under the LVMH umbrella. After retirement, John Galliano succeeded Givenchy as head of design but was later replaced by Alexander McQueen. Then in 2001, designer Julien McDonald was appointed Artistic Director for the women's lines. A few years later in 2003, Ozwald Boateng was appointed the head designer for the men's lines. The reins for both haute couture and women's ready-to-wear have since been passed on to Riccardo Tisci when in 2005 he was named chief designer of Womenswear. Tisci's apparent fascination with gothic touches-dark, languid dresses-and space-age minimalism-ready-to-wear items featuring mostly the color white-have drawn new attention to the brand. Tisci's conceptual leanings are helping to revitalize the Givenchy brand by infusing it with his keen precision and imagination.

Life Facts:
Hubert de Givenchy is a member of Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture et du Pret-a-Porter. He believed in the value of mentorship, and Cristbal Balenciaga was his mentor. Givenchy never did work for Cristbal, but was thought to haven taken over his mantle by designing elegant formal evening attire. Up until his retirement, Givenchy remained the head of design, always designing in a white "lab coat", no doubt to keep his focus on the beautiful designs in front of him.

Hi everyone

One day my friend showed me an interesting and colorful game, just like from My childhood, fruit combinations, very fascinating and most importantly develops logic and luck, it does not oblige to anything and helps brighten up the time!
The designers have carefully approached the development of the Sweet Bonanza slot, carefully working through every detail. The graphic design is as detailed as possible, the colors are displayed perfectly, and the symbols are easily distinguishable. The slot machine is animated: as the reels spin, the player notices that the images change smoothly, creating new combinations.
The interface will present no difficulties. Both an experienced player and a beginner playing the slot for the first time will be able to easily navigate the simple menu of the slot machine.
Sweet Bonanza is available to play on both computer and smartphones and tablets on the website
The demo version of Sweet Bonanza slot supports full-screen mode, which makes it easier to set up the game. The screen resolution adapts automatically and you don't need to manually change the settings!

Good luck friends!
