Madrid Museum Honors Hubert de Givenchy With First Retrospective

Madrid’s Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum opened a new exhibit last month paying tribute to French fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy. This is the first major retrospective on Givenchy worldwide, but for the Spanish art museum, it is their first foray into the world of fashion. Personally curated by the 87-year-old designer, the collection will feature roughly 100 of his pieces ranging the span of his 50-year career which saw him dressing women from Hollywood starlets to First Ladies. The designs on display are currently on loan from other museums around the world and borrowed from private collectors.
