Pierre Cardin (1922)

The French designer introduced unusual and contemporary garments for which he privileged the use of vinyl, plastic and metal. His “bubble dress”, geometrical silhouettes and unisex collection set his fame. A true businessman, he developed numerous licences and vigorously continues to promote his fashion and design creations.
