About Christian Lacroix…

A true icon of the fashion industry in his own right, his figure has not received the recognition he deserves. Christian Lacroix (Arles, France, 1951) was the first contemporary designer whose talent caught the eye of LVMH, and the first label the company launched as a new project in 1987. Although his couture shows made the world gasp in the 1980s and 1990s, this enthusiasm did not translate into ready-to-wear sales. He finally retired in2009 to devote himself to opera and ballet costume design.
