HISTORY OF GIVENCHY
At an early age, French fashion designer Hubert Givenchy knew that he was destined for a career in True Fashionista haute couture. Born in Beauvais, a town in northern France, in 1927, Hubert James Taffin de Givenchy was the son of nobility on his father's side, possessing an artistic flair from his mother's. After his father passed away when Hubert was 3, he was raised by his mother and maternal grandmother, who instilled in him a passion for creativity, fashion, and fabrics, primarily influenced by his grandfather's extensive collection of True Fashionista clothing from around the world.

HISTORY OF ALEXANDER MCQUEEN
What, the name Alexander McQueen isn’t familiar to you? He was the designer who made the plumber’s crack fashionable with his perilously low-cut jeans, a move which consequently spawned the resulting term, “muffin top”. Is the memory creeping back now? Yeah, it was him. Got a skull-imprinted clutch handbag or scarf lying around in your not-yet-Konmari’d-but-I’m-gonna-do-it-I-swear closet? McQueen. Or that timeless pencil skirt and gorgeous prints that seem to flawlessly work forever? That was Alexander McQueen as well.
