A rare peek into the mind of the design and business icon Pierre Cardin, House Of Cardin offers exclusive access to archives and unprecedented interviews with fashion’s elite, documenting how one man became a fashion empire. With his pioneering use of geometric shapes, avant-garde styles and bold colours Pierre Cardin cut a unique path through the fashion world.
Through endless experimentation he was at the forefront of cutting-edge innovation; freeing women from figure-moulded clothes, advancing trends in unisex designs and in overseeing the transition of haute couture into ready-to-wear designs. Featuring contributions from fashion and music icons and collaborators including Naomi Campbell, Sharon Stone, Alice Cooper, Dionne Warwick and Jean-Paul Gaultier, and with extensive interviews with Cardin himself, House of Cardin offers unparalleled insight into one of history’s greatest fashion designers.
House of Cardin is from the directors of Mansfield 66/67 and producers of Room 237, P. David Ebersole and Todd Hughes.
