Givenchy will not show at Paris Fashion Week.

The fashion house are taking a break from their couture collection and will be omitted from the January schedule at the French style spectacular.

It is not known how long the intended hiatus is due to last, but the brand has confirmed that Riccardo Tisci is to continue to produce one-off couture events for high-profile formal occasions, such as the 2013 Costume Institute Ball next May.

In 2010, Givenchy stopped presenting new collections in large-scale couture catwalk shows, opting instead for intimate presentations.

According to, the fashion house intend to concentrate on their ready-to-wear line and declined to comment on whether there are any plans to create haute couture collections again in the future.

It was recently claimed that Givenchy was set to collaborate with Swedish high street chain H&M.

Tumblr user Fashion Industry Confessions said: ''Rumours straight from the Givenchy head quarters have it they will collaborate with H&M next year.''

A representative at H&M would only say ''we don't comment on rumours''.

Other labels to have worked with H&M in the past include Versace, Jimmy Choo and Maison Martin Margiela.
