Founded in 1952 by Hubert de Givenchy, Givenchy is an international luxury house known for its Haute Couture, ready-to-wear and accessories' collections for men and women. Since 2005, Riccardo Tisci has been the creative director of women’s Haute Couture, ready-to-wear and accessories' collections (extended to menswear in 2008). Twisting the codes of the House - cool chic, sobriety, femininity and aristocratic elegance, Riccardo Tisci adds dark romanticism and sensuality. He creates a silhouette combining pure lines with a graphic structure. True to the House's creative heritage and spirit, Riccardo Tisci brings the name of Givenchy into today's world while ushering it into the future.
