For this publication, French couturier Hubert de Givenchy personally selected the highlights of his career and displays the special friendship and collaboration he had with his muse—Audrey Hepburn. As an actress she wore his outfits in some of her most well-know films, like 'Sabrina' and 'How to steal a Million'. Audrey's little black dress in 'Breakfast at Tiffany’s' is considered to be one of the ten most famous dresses in the world.
"Givenchy’s clothes are the only ones I feel myself in. He is more than a designer, he is a creator of personality." – Audrey Hepburn
