Givenchy Hubert de Givenchy, one of the most talented and famous fashion designers of all time, relaxes before his show at the Waldorf Astoria's Ball Room in 1976. He's wearing a fitted polo shirt, some jeans, and what appears to be a scarf wrapped around his waist, classic and avantgard 70s style.
This is Madeleine Vionnet. Born in 1876, a seamstress at the age of eleven, she eventually became one of the most influential fashion designers of the 20th century with her famed “House of Vionnet” which opened in 1912 and operated through the late 1930′s. Karl Lagerfeld, John Galliano, Christian Dior, Azzedine Alaia and Cristobal Balenciaga all name Vionnet as a major influence.
