The esteemed fashion giant passed away in his sleep on Saturday at the Renaissance chateau, near Paris, that he shared with his partner and fellow designer Philippe Venet.

Hubert de Givenchy was the noblest of French designers, known for his own personal elegance and impeccable manners. He was born into a noble French family and destined initially for the law. But at the end of World War Two, he persuaded his family to let him pursue his passion for clothes.
