The revolution he started is rippling through the fashion industry to this day. Still reigning over an empire at 97, Pierre Cardin changed everything we had known about patterns, textures and colors, blurring the boundary between haute-couture and mass-produced fashion, East and West, tradition and futurism.
Born in Italy and raised in France, Cardin made his first steps in fashion design under the tutelage of giants like Jean Cocteau and Christian Dior. He singlehandedly founded the world’s first fashion house to also design glasses, perfumes and even cars, and the avant-garde theater he supported spread his influence across all spheres of culture. The vivid highlights of Cardin’s life are revisited by Jean-Paul Gaultier, Sharon Stone, Naomi Campbell and others, while thousands of innovative Cardin gowns and accessories grace the screen.
