Born to French parents in Italy, the family moved to France in 1924 in order to avoid the rise of fascism. During his upbringing, Pierre’s father was trying to get Pierre interested in architecture, however, from an early age, Pierre was inspired by fashion. He left home when he was 17 years old, having already worked for three years as a clothier’s apprentice, and been trained in design and construction. Once he branched out he found a job in Vichy, working for a tailor and started making clothes for women. Several years later he headed to Paris and not wanting to leave his father disappointed in him, started studying architecture but also continued on with his dream of finding a spot for himself at the fashion house of Paquin after the end of the World War II. Focusing solely on his dream, Pierre collaborated with Elsa Schiaparelli and was then appointed as the head of Christian Dior’s tailleure atelier in 1947.

Just three years later Pierre went solo, and started his own fashion house; the following year, he made a name for himself by designing more than 30 costumes used for |the party of the century”, a masquerade ball at the Palazzo Labia in Venice. In 1953 he joined the world scene of haute couture, and in 1954 launched his well-known “bubble dress”. Pierre really rose to prominence during the ‘60s and ‘70s, setting new trends in the fashion industry, including the combination of the “mini” and the “maxi” skirt, then “mod chic”, and won several awards during the period, including EUR Award, and the Golden Thimble of French Haute-Couture Award for most creative collection of the season, in 1977 and 1979.

He slowed down his new collections from the start of the ‘80s, taking a break until the mid- ‘90s with an exhibition held at his bubble house in Cannes, attended by at least 150 journalists and clients.

Pierre had built up a brand name not only in the fashion industry but also managed to extend his kingdom to several other areas, putting his name on everything from key chains to pencil holders.

To speak further of his enterprises, Pierre bought Maxim’s restaurants back in 1981 and had several objects opened in London, Beijing, New York, and rebranded to hotels. In 2001 he bought the Marquis de Sade castle ruins, located in Lacoste, Vaucluse, and has put an effort into rejuvenating the place, and it is now the home of various music and dance festivals.

Regarding his personal life, Cardin has always managed to keep his private life from the media; apart from the fact that he was in a relationship with actress Jeanne Moreau, there is no other public information.

Pierre is known for his philanthropic activities; since the early ‘90s he has been serving as a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador, and in 2009 he was also nominated for the spot of Goodwill Ambassador of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations. His philanthropic activities have been active since World War II, when he volunteered for the Red Cross.
