Pierre Cardin (French pronunciation: [pjɛʁ kaʁdɛ̃], born Pietro Cardin, is an Italian-born French fashion designer who was born on 7 July 1922, at San Biagio di Callalta near Treviso.
Cardin was known for his avant-garde style and his Space Age designs. He prefers geometric shapes and motifs, often ignoring the female form. He advanced into unisex fashions, sometimes experimental, and not always practical. He introduced the "bubble dress" in 1954.
Pierre Cardin was also designated UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador in 1991.
On 16 October 2009, Pierre Cardin was nominated Goodwill Ambassador of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).click here for more info.

comment: Well, I've heard of him back then when I was studying fashion design few years ago, but somehow he's not familiar to me like any other fashion legend such as Coco Chanel and Yvest Saint laurent,etc. However the contribution of decades in fashion is something worth an admirable applause.
