Yves Saint Laurent
Yves Saint Laurent, Algerian-born French fashion designer, lived from 1936 to 2008. He was one of the greatest designers in French fashion during the 20th century. Saint Laurent began his fashion career as the star graduate of the Chambre Syndicale fashion school as a talented design assistant at the French couture house Christian Dior in 1955. After Dior’s death in 1957, the 21 year old created the first Dior collection in just 9 weeks. He left the couture house to join the French army a couple of years later. When Saint Laurent came back, he decided to open his own namesake couture house that still remains as one of the most high-end brands in the fashion industry.
