Pierre Cardin, born as Pietro Costante Cardin (2 July 1922 – 29 December 2020), was an Italian-born naturalised-French fashion designer. He is known for what his avant-garde style and Space Age designs were. He preferred geometric shapes and motifs, often ignoring the female form. He advanced into unisex fashions, sometimes experimental, and not always practical. He founded his fashion house in 1950 and introduced the famous “bubble dress” in 1954. Cardin was designated a Unesco Godwill Ambassador in 1991, and a United Nations FAO Goodwill Ambassador in 2009. Cardin was one of the most important fashion designers of his era.
