He began his career by making costumes for Jean Cockteau's legendary production of 'Beauty and the Beast.' After apprenticing to Jeanne Paquin and Elsa Schiaparelli, Cardin played a major part in the development of the New Look at Christian Dior, then started his own house where he created the Beatles' iconic collarless suits and outfitted all of the actors in 'The Avengers' television series. Cardin explored fashion through a restless pop sensibility that manifested in the geometric shapes, form fitting tailoring, and 'space age' materials (vinyl, silver fabrics, and large zippers) that became the trademark of the 1960s guaranteeing Cardin's central position in fashion history." (Publisher). Stunning production documenting the career of one of the ultimate fashion icons of our time, illustrated with breathtaking color and b/w photographs by Yoshi Takata and Sergio Altieri.
