Pierre Cardin Logo – Pierre Cardin is a fashion designer who was born on July 2 of 1922, in San Biagio di Callalta, region of Veneto, Italy, of Italian parents. He moved to Paris in 1945. There he studied architecture and worked with Tiny after the war. He worked with Schiaparelli until he became head of the studio of Christian Dior in 1947. When I refused to work in Balenciaga, decided to found his own house in 1950. Thus began Cardin haute couture in 1953.
Cardin was known for his style avant-garde, and their designs Space Age. Preferred geometric shapes and motifs, often ignoring the female form. Innovated to design unisex fashion, proving that sometimes this is experimental and not always practical. In 1954 introduced the “bubble dress”. Cardin was the first designer to export to Japan, a market of high fashion when he traveled there in 1959.
In 1959, he was expelled from the Chambre Syndicale for launching a collection of prêt-à-porter (ready to wear), for department stores (Printemps), which was inappropriate for the time since it was considered the first couturier (dressmaker) in Paris but was soon reinstated. However, withdrew from the Chambre Syndicale in 1966 and now shows his collections in the Espace Cardin which is proud and which opened 1971 in Paris, where he was formerly the Theatre des Ambassadeurs, near the U.S. Embassy States. The Espace Cardin is also used to promote new artistic talents, like theater groups, musicians and others.
Cardin has expanded its brand to other markets including includes a contract with American Motors (AMC), following the success of Aldo Gucci, who designed the interior of the carriages Sportabout Hornet. Cars AMC Javelin incorporated within Cardin designs highlighting the audacity and extravagance, exquisitely defined terms that the designer, these cars were available in 1972 and 1973. A total of 4152 cars received a combination of Chinese gangs interior trim in various colors creating a set against a black background. This was one of the first American cars to offer a special package that allowed customize by removing liners seats, an idea created by the then already famous fashion designer.
The Cardin Jaballins also came with designer emblem on the front and had a limited selection of exterior colors to coordinate with special customization of interiors. His fellow designer, Andrè Oliver, who joined him in 1971 and assumed responsibility for the collections of haute couture in 1987, died in 1993. Cardin was a member of the Chambre Syndicale, the Haute Couture and Prêt à Porter and the Maison Haute Couture from 1953 to 1993. Like many other designers today, Cardin decided in 1994 to show his collection only to a small circle of selected clients and journalists.
