24 2002 French fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy and Somalian-born model Iman pose for

French fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy, famous for styling actress Audrey Hepburn and USA first lady Jackie Kennedy, has died at the age of 91.

Then over the course of the meal, Givenchy, who was only two years her senior, fell under her charm and he ended up asking her to drop round to his Paris studio the next morning. His company released a statement Morning confirming his death.

Givenchy opened his own shop Paris in 1952 on Rue Alfred de Vigny in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, after designing for, then unknown, Pierre Balmain and Christian Dior.

"The idea of designer and muse can be an overused idea in fashion but Hubert de Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn was one of true collaboration", Zee shared on Twitter.

"It is with huge sadness that we inform you that Hubert Taffin de Givenchy has died", it said in a statement to AFP.

His impressive clientele included members of British aristocracy, Audrey Hepburn, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy among other noted dignitaries. And he revolutionized worldwide fashion with the timelessly stylish looks he created for Audrey Hepburn, his great friend and muse for over 40 years. As Hepburn said of Givenchy: "His are the only clothes in which I am myself. He is far more than a couturier, he is a creator of personality", Hepburn once said of him.

With typical discretion, Givenchy made no comment, only that he had not been consulted about the appointments.

In 1955, Givenchy relocated to the tony Avenue George V, across the street from his idol, Spanish-born designer Balenciaga.

Mr Givenchy set the template for ladylike chic in the 1950s and 1960s, dressing everyone from Princess Grace of Monaco to former US First Lady Jackie Kennedy. The news was broken to the world by his family, who announced it today through a French news agency.

The fashion industry is mourning the death of French designer and stylist Hubert de Givenchy.

He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris when he was seventeen-years-old.

Headquartered in a small room off the Parc Monceau, well off Paris' famed Golden Triangle, the house of Givenchy proved an instant success. He went on to develop ready-to-wear and menswear collections, and his first perfume, L'Interdit (meaning "forbidden"), was created for Hepburn in 1957.
