This catalogue was printed in 2004 on the occasion of the retrospective on Pierre Cardin at Galleria Carla Sozzani. Pierre Cardin is considered as the most visionary fashion designer of all times, and his creations were often acclaimed as“instant classics“. His career is spangled with successes and his clothes have been worn by celebrities all around the world. The catalogue depicts his most declared designs from the end of the 60’s to the beginning of the 70’s. At that time his noto- riety was amazingly increasing day by day: he was awarded with many prestigious prizes and he was expanding his ac- tivity, opening his first store in Paris and exporting, before anybody else did, his business to People’s Republic of China. It was the beginning of an empire that Pierre Cardin built on his own, and that is still making him known as a living legend.
