When I heard about Givenchy´s death I was completely unaware what he was best known for and started researching on some of his iconic pieces.  I came across some wonderful photos which gave me the feeling of regret for not having looked at his pieces more often.  I am still pretty new at learning and distinguishing designers´ work but I can now say I know little more about this French designer. First of all, his muse Audrey Hepburn. She wore his dresses as if it were her second skin and one of my favourite pics (of many) was this one were she’s wearing what seems to be a 60´s floral spring dress.
