Shout-out to Hubert de Givenchy (the founder Givenchy)!

For those of you who do not know Hubert. Hubert was a French fashion designer who founded “Givenchy” in 1952. He was highly sought after for having designed much of the personal and professional wardrobe of a lot of famous people back in his time such as: Audrey Hepburn and Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. He was named to the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame in 1970. 

Fashion journalist Dana Thomas wrote in The Washington Post in 1995. “Givenchy has long been a classicist, one of the last of the old school of haute couture, where gorgeous clothes were made for a woman to live in, not to decorate her.  

Unlike contemporary Fashion Designs, his designs were majorly Modest, Simple, Romantic and Classy. Pencil Skirts and Long Maxi Skirts are still trending in our Modern Fashion World. For those of you who are “Classicists” (aka: Love the old French/European Fashion and Fashion Designers), here are examples of some of Hubert de Givenchy’s designs as well as modern pictures of how you can you incorporate them into a modern fashion style. Not only that, long coats have been so trendy in the past 2-3 years. No style is a “Grandma Style” anymore! (By: Afnan Alheyari – IG: @modestybyafnan )
