On February 2nd 1952, Hubert de Givenchy presented his very first collection. He surrounded himself with the best models of the day, who also happened to be his friends: Bettina Graziani also served as his head of public relations.

Bettina opened the show with what would become the famous “Bettina blouse”. Brimming with youth and freshness, like the rest of the collection, this white linen blouse with flounced sleeves and eyelet embroidery by Pierre Brivet was worn with a skirt in Hurel gabardine.
