Julien then launched his own label two years later and was made creative director of Givenchy in 2001 and was also named as British Fashion Designer of the Year.  

He previously received criticism for using fur in some of his early collections.

Reflecting on changes he has made to his clothing, he told Reuters: ‘As a young designer I did use a lot of fur and do you know what, I think you should perhaps try not to.

‘You know what? It was my mistake. I was young. I am sorry. I apologise.’

He later added: ‘You do not need to kill animals to wear nice clothes.’
