Pierre Cardin - Pursuit of the Future

Pierre Cardin: Pursuit of the Future

On view at the SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film through September 30, this major retrospective exhibition features the designs of the legendary fashion futurist Pierre Cardin. A revolutionary force in the fashion industry for seven decades, the indomitable 95-year-old designer continues at the helm of his creative enterprises and has earned numerous accolades for his contributions to fashion and humanitarian causes.

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.

The exhibition celebrates Cardin's spirit and vision, both unwaveringly inspired by the future. "The clothes I prefer are the garments I invent for a lifestyle that does not yet exist - the world of tomorrow," Cardin commented.
