March 10th 2018 marks a sad day in fashion history. Hubert De Givenchy passed away at 91 years of age. Hubert De Givenchy was the founder of The House of Givenchy and worked closely with big names in movies, politics and royals. Something we have all adored seeing here at Royist is the incredible amounts of work Givenchy did with fashion icon Audrey Hepburn who wore Hubert’s designs on and off screen. Both were close to each other, meeting on set of Sabrina.
