'This book has been published to coincide with the exhibition marking Hubert de Givenchy's forty years in fashion. Divided into three sections, it presents a portrait of Givenchy the couturier and art lover and, at times, interior decorator, an analysis of the development of his fashion house and label, and a study of his career and style. Magnificiently illustrated, it ends with a chronological account of Hubert de Givenchy's forty years of creation.' (from the blurb).
