French famous designer Pierre Cardin was on Tuesday announced dead by France’s Academy of Fine Arts.
Cardin carved a niche for himself by creating a revolutionary look with the iconic Space Age style in the 20th century.
He launched “ready-to-wear” collections, bringing high fashion to the middle classes. His designer peers were aghast, and threw him out of their club.
The savvy businessman sold out 100,00 outlets worldwide in his brand’s zenith days around the 1970s and ’80s.
