Switzerland: Hepburn and Givenchy on display

A new exhibition about the long friendship and fashion partnership between Audrey Hepburn and the legendary fashion designer, Hubert de Givenchy, is on view through September 9, 2018 at Fondation Bolle in Morges. Audrey Hepburn: Entre films, vie privée et amitié. Givenchy, one of the most eminent designers of the 20th and 21st centuries, was the favorite designer of Hepburn, and he dressed her in such classic films as Funny Face, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Charade. The film star and the haute couture legend are celebrated at this museum housed in an 18th century mansion in Morges, the lakeside town where Hepburn spent the last three decades of her life. There are original film posters, a documentary on view, magazine covers and articles from the time and unpublished Givenchy sketches and large-scale photographs of Hepburn modelling the designer’s creations.
