Founded by Monsieur Pierre Cardin in France in 1950, the brand has become one of the greatest fashion empires of all time, giving direction to world fashion with its innovations and unusual designs. Pierre Cardin, who reflected the enthusiasm of the period with the theme “Space Age” in his collections, especially in the 60s when space research was gaining pace, is one of the first representatives of the avant-garde and futuristic movement in fashion. Pierre Cardin, who presented leggings, shoulder pads, and maxi coats to ready-made clothing to the fashion industry, which still keep their place in wardrobes today, is considered by authorities as one of the five best-known French fashion designers on earth.
After the 1980s, Pierre Cardin opened boutiques in many parts of the world, from the US to China, from the UK to the Soviet Union, and gained even more popularity as a design brand not in clothing, but also in areas such as jewelry, perfume, furniture, and accessories.
