The brand Pierre Cardin was founded in 1953, when fashion designer Pierre Cardin, born in Italy and raised in France, launched his first women's haute couture collection. Before launching his first collection, talented French fashion designer Pierre Cardin had worked with Christian Dior and had designed some costumes and masks for the theatre.
Pierre Cardin's collections revolutionized the fashion world. His pieces were futuristic, his fabric impeccably cut, and in unusual, unique colours. In 1954 , Pierre Cardin branched out into international markets with both his 'bubble dresses' inspired in geometric shapes and later his 'tulip-shaped skirt', a worldwide triumph. In 1959, Cardin presented his first ready-to-wear collection for women, a democratic touch in the fashion world with the launching of top quality pieces mass production. Pierre Cardin surprised the fashion world with unique, glamorous styles for all tastes leading to worldwide fame and to many fashion awards. The brand has a presence in over 100 countries such as Portugal, France, the United States of America, China, Turkey, and many others.
