Philippe Venet said, through the Givenchy fashion house: "It is with huge sadness that we inform you that Hubert Taffin de Givenchy has died".

The esteemed fashion giant's last collection was in 1995, when he retired after an impressive career spanning five decades.

Those famous creations were shown in an exhibition at a museum in Madrid in 2014. (UNI)
