Pierre Cardin. Exhibition in Düsseldorf
The creations of French fashion designer Pierre Cardin could well be described as fashion for the future. His designs from the 1960s and 1970s in particular are still considered avant-garde today, as Cardin was already experimenting with futuristic cuts and working with unusual materials such as acrylic, plastic and imitation leather. What’s more, Cardin was among those fashion designers who wanted to make quality affordable for everyone. By granting numerous licenses for various product ranges, some of which he also designed collections for, he succeeded in turning the company that he founded in 1950 into a fashion empire. The Museum Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf is presenting an exhibition dedicated to Pierre Cardin from 19 September 2019 to 5 January 2020. Fashion Futurist offers an extensive monographic view of this exceptional designer, who at the age of 97 continues to be the sole owner of his company.
