This item is a GIVENCHY DE SELECTION SHIRT STYLE DRESS Sz 14-16..Also, European sizes run differently than American sizing. I have made every effort to accurately describe this item as honestly and completely as possible.Fabulous Master piece...Fashion Designer Hubert de Givenchy was born to a wealthy family 1927 in Beauvais, France. He studied at the ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. His first job in the fashion industry was when he worked for Jacques Fath in Paris in 1945. He then worked briefly for Robert Piguet and for Lucien Lelong (1946) where he worked with Lelong's assistants, Pierre Balmain and Christian Dior, and finally for Elsa Schiaparelli (1947- 1951). He opened the House of Givenchy in 1952. He named his first collection for Bettina Graziani, Paris's top model. Balenciaga was his mentor, although he never worked for him, whose atelier was just across the avenue George V. Two women represent the typical Givenchy style of the 50s and 60s: Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy. By furnishing Hollywood movie stars beginning in 1953, Givenchy achieved a popularity like never before. A rather sad event brought global attention to Givenchy dresses. When John F.Kennedy was assassinated, the world witnessed a mourning Kennedy family all dressed in Givenchy clothes. Jackie Kennedy ordered a Givenchy dress for the funeral, which was especially flown in from Paris. It is said, that at that time, the Givenchy atelier possessed individual patterns sheets for every female member of the Kennedy family. In 1955, he introduced separates and then the Orlon-fabric to the haute couture. His designs are elegant and refined....This is Shirt Style dress with V neck design on the front..Hidden zipper on the back and slit.
