This largely pictorial catalogue presents photographic documentation of some 270 haute couture creations produced from 1951 to 1990 by French designer Cardin (b. 1922), surveying the full range of his work but focusing on his imaginatively tailored and inventive fashions for women. An introductory essay reviews Cardin's career and discusses his emphasis on simplified geometric forms and carefully selected fabrics.
