Hubert de Givenchy (1927-2018)

Givenchy by Cecil Beaton, December 1971

Hubert de Givenchy quotes:
" In every moment you must be attentive and notice the little things to be creative. It's a fabulous thing, to give life to fabric, to make something move well, the harmony of color."
 " There's Balenciaga, and the good Lord."
 " You must, if it's possible, be born with a kind of elegance. It is a part of you, of yourself."
 "I think when you sell your company, and are no longer the master of driving it, it's quite difficult...I don't think I have any interest any more. It's better like that."
" Every epoch is different, and you must accept the reality. C'est la vie. Happily, for many years we had a wonderful time. Beautiful fabric, beautiful people, beautiful memories."
