Overview

This luxurious book gathers 150 exclusive fashion sketches by Hubert de Givenchy, done in May 2014. The book was created as a gift to his muse and marvellous friend, Audrey Hepburn.

Some of Hubert de Givenchy's most beautiful creations were born from their wonderful friendship. On and off the big screen, Audrey Hepburn brought to these clothes her exceptional charm: Sabrina (1954), Funny Face (1957), Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), How to Steal a Million (1966)...

Hubert de Givenchy's drawings dance on the pages, inviting us to embark upon an exclusive retrospective of his most beautiful designs, accompanied by his annotations, from the famous Bettina blouse of 1952 to the wedding dress of his last collection in 1995.
