Pierre Cardin acclaimed fashion designer dies at 98

Pierre Cardin acclaimed fashion designer whose Space Age style was among the iconic looks of 20th-century fashion, passed away aged 98 in France on Tuesday.

Cardin died at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, just outside Paris, his family told the Agence France-Presse.

France’s Fine Arts Academy announced in a statement on Twitter said:  “The Perpetual Secretary, Laurent Petitgirard, and the members of the Academy of Fine Arts are deeply saddened to announce the death of their colleague Pierre Cardin. He had been elected on 12 February 1992 to the chair of Pierre Dux.”

The Italian-born French designer had defined the futuristic look of the 1960s and revolutionized the business of high fashion.

His futuristic creations were worn by stars including Elizabeth Taylor, The Beatles, and Lauren Bacall, and was responsible for redefining fashion’s business model as he built an international empire of licensed products.

He was born in Italy in 1922 and moved to France during his childhood and became a tailor’s apprentice at age 14.
