Pierre Cardin : Pursuit of the Future

The 95-year-old legendary couturier and innovative fashion designer PIERRE CARDIN is having another busy year in the limelight.  Right now a new documentary on the great man made by married filmmaking couple Todd Hughes and P. David Ebersole is being previewed at Cannes (watch this space for details).

Cardin is also being honored with a major retrospective exhibition “Pierre Cardin: Pursuit of the Future” at SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film in Atlanta. Best known for his 1960s space-age style, Cardin has pushed the boundaries of fashion by exploring new materials and silhouettes. The exhibition presents iconic looks for both women and men from the 1950s to present, borrowed mainly from the Pierre Cardin Museum in Paris, and includes several dresses from the SCAD Permanent Collection.

Cardin has said, “The clothes I prefer are the garments I invent for a lifestyle that does not yet exist — the world of tomorrow.” The exhibition celebrates Cardin’s spirit and vision, both unwaveringly inspired by the future.
