“Hubert de Givenchy” at the Thyssen Bornemisza museum, Madrid.
The Thyssen Bornemisza proposes a debut retrospective dedicated to French couturier Hubert de Givenchy, creative figure of the 20th century and living legend of the story of haute couture.
For this first excursion into the world of fashion, the exhibition, overseen by Mr. de Givenchy himself, pays special attention to fifty years of design, from 1952 to his retirement in 1996. Thanks to pieces loaned from around the world, some of which have never been exhibited, Givenchy’s art plainly expresses itself here, also telling the story of the friendship he had with actress Audrey Hepburn.
Until 18th January 2015.
