Paris: French designer, Pierre Cardin has died at the age of 98 at the American Hospital of Paris on Tuesday, according to Agence France-Presse. His death was confirmed by the French Academy of Fine Arts. Cardin invented the business of fashion as it is supervised today.
Born on 2 July 1992, Cardin was known for his avant-garde style and Space Age designs and was the son of Italian immigrants.
He advanced into unisex fashions, sometimes experimental, and not always practical. He founded his fashion house in 1950 and introduced the “bubble dress” in 1954. He was designated a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador in 1991, and a United Nations FAO Goodwill Ambassador in 2009.
Cardin not only ventured into fashion but also to other business today. We see a huge range of products such as perfumes, sunglasses by the brand name.
“We are all proud of his tenacious ambition and the daring he has shown throughout his life,” his family said.
