On the centenary of Pierre Cardin's birth, this volume looks back at the designer's early career to discover the inspirations behind his later iconic work.

Pierre Cardin's designs were worn by an international elite of beautiful women, from Jackie Kennedy to Lauren Bacall and Jeanne Moreau. A close friend of André Courrèges and Paco Rabanne, Cardin revolutionized modern fashion in the mid-1960s, creating iconic designs that continue to resonate today. His many talents and mastery of materials--from fabrics to plastics--extended from haute couture to ready-to-wear, menswear, jewelry, furniture design, perfumes, and accessories, while his business acumen led him to create a business empire that stretched from China to the United States.
