Crochet design: Givenchy

Next up for the Progetto Crochet design is Givenchy. Hubert de Givenchy is associated with Audrey Hepburn because she made his designs famous. I only recently saw Breakfast at Tiffany’s for the first time and I fell in love with it, and the beautiful Hepburn, so I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for Givenchy right now.

Hubert de Givenchy

Hubert de Givenchy was inspired by his mother’s fashion sense to make women’s clothing. He got started young and by age 24, working as an assistant to other top fashion designers (come Elsa Schiaperelli) and opening his own boutique salon by the age of 24. He worked in simple materials like cotton and linen and although that’s something he originally did because of cost it’s something he continued to do because he appreciated the simplicity of the fabrics. He stayed in the fashion business for more than 35 anni, finally selling his business to the LMVH group in 1988 and retiring from fashion completely in 1995. He passed away a year later. The Givenchy label continues and has featured work by many other amazing designers like John Galiano, Christian Dior e Alexander McQueen.

Givenchy Designs I Would Love to See Reinvented in Crochet

I’d love to see this Givenchy wool grommet dress redone in crochet but without the pleating on the skirt.

I love the shape of this chunky Givenchy knit sweater and would love to see the same style in crochet.

The iconic Audrey Hepburn wedding dress would probably look silly if it was all done in crochet but it inspires me to want to see black crochet motifs against a grand white dress.
