Givenchy Black Velvet and Green Taffeta Silk Bow Evening Dress, 1980s

About

Striking doesn't even begin to describe it! Fabulous maxi full length evening dress by the one and only Hubert de Givenchy! The green taffeta silk has a slight iridescent duochrome pink sheen. The dress has long sleeves, a turtleneck, and a body-skimming fit and flare silhouette with an exuberance of silk below the knee. The neck features a large silk bow with a rhinestone ring around the center knot. The skirt has four mermaid - like tiers and is nothing short of voluminous. The dress is nothing short of A M A Z I N G. Hubert de Givenchy is known best for his elegant and innovative haute couture. He began his career working under Elsa Schiaparelli, Jacques Fath, Robert Piguet, and Lucien Lelong. As a young man, he worked alongside Pierre Balmain and Christian Dior who were also making their mark on Parisian fashion. Givenchy designed Audrey Hepburn’s iconic “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” dress, popularizing the modern “little black dress”. He also designed much of Hepburn’s personal wardrobe. Givenchy was always reinventing himself and with that, revolutionizing the state of fashion. He is credited for creating the “baby doll” dress and “balloon coat,” two designs emblematic of the 1960s. Clients include Ingrid Bergman, Maria Callas, Nona Hendryx, Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis,[8] Empress Farah Pahlavi, Comtesse Jacqueline de Ribes, Baroness Pauline de Rothschild, and Diana Vreeland.
