Pierre Cardin

Venezia, 03/11/2009. Pierre Cardin,

Pietro Cardin, now known as the French fashion designer Pierre Cardin, has made his brand The House of Cardin an international success. Even though he was born near Treviso, Italy, Cardin completed his schooling in France. He was an apprentice for a clothing company starting at the age of 14. Then in 1939 he expanded his expertise to making suits for women. During the second World War, he worked with Red Cross and still to this day continues with his humanitarian interests. After the war, Cardin moved to Paris and started working for Paquin. He then moved to become head tailleure atelier for Christian Dior in 1947. The House of Cardin was founded in 1950. In 1959, he was the first to express Japan as a high fashion market. He created the “Espace Cardin” which opened in 1971. The space showed not only Cardin’s own collections, but featured theatre ensembles, music artists, and other artistic talents. The Pakistan International Airlines signed Cardin to design uniforms for their flag carriers during the 1960s. In 1971, he redesigned the national costume of the Philippines called the Barong Tagalog. Also in the 1970s, Cardin signed with American Motors Corporation (AMC) and his designs were featured in the AMC Javelin. Cardin’s interest in geometric shapes is shown in his clothing designs as well as the creation of his Le Palais Bulles (The Bubble House). In the 1980s, he chained restaurants and hotels titled Maxim’s. His biography was written by Sylvana Lorenz, named Biographie de Pierre Cardin. In 1991, he was designated UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador. Later in 2009, Cardin was nominated the Goodwill Ambassador of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Cardin is now 92 years old.

Pierre Cardin’s fashion designs are unique. They include his interest in geometric shapes, his Space Age designs, an avant-garde style, and unisex styles. He often excludes the female form in his clothing. In 1954, Cardin introduced the “bubble dress.”

IMG_2833.PNG

The newest face of Chanel, Cara Delevingne, along with model Kendell Jenner, started off the latest Chanel fashion show for the A/W 2014/2015 collection. Karl Lagerfeld probably doesn’t even know what the inside of a supermarket looks like, but that didn’t stop him from creating a Chanel shopping isle setting for his A/W 2014/2015 show. He compares the show to Andy Warhol and Art Pop, adding that humor is needed for fashion. Lagerfeld included elements of Mademoiselle Chanel herself, such as doormats stamped with Mademoiselle Privé, which was on her studio door.
