An icon

Pierre Cardin
Iconic pieces- first to use techno fabrics like Materials of vinyl- staying power

Introduced ready-to-wear

He is concentrated on what he is doing for tomorrow’s world

In the 60’s he wanted to give freedom through fashion to women

Square cut dresses were used to free the body, with touches to add “new culture”—color hose/helmets

Youth culture

Opposite of Dior

He predicted rightfully the unisex wearing of fashion between the male and female-he made tunics

Timeless pieces Wants to “appeal to the next generation”

Entrepreneur in not just fashion, but books, built an empire on licenses, and then invested it in real estate

I ADORE his work. And want a dress!
