Amity University Mumbai Organizes Webinar On Remembering Pierre Cardin

 Pierre Cardin (02.07.22 - 29.12.20) was an Italian-born, naturalized-French fashion designer who was known for his Avant-garde and Space Age designs.

 
Pierre Cardin was visionary designer who transformed the business of fashion, clothed the elite but also reaching the masses by affixing his name to an outpouring of merchandise ranging from off-the-rack apparel to bath towels, died on 29th December 2020 in Neuilly-sur-Seine, just outside Paris at the age of 98.
 
Cardin went from the world of bespoke high fashion for private clients to ready-to-wear designs for the masses. From bubble dresses to aviator jumpsuits, fragrances to automobiles, ashtrays and even pickle jars, Pierre Cardin has inscribed his brand on everything. Pierre Cardin planted his flag on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris, where he proceeded to turn the country’s fashion establishment on its head, reproducing fashions for mass, ready-to-wear consumption and dealing a blow to the elitism that had governed the Parisian couture.
 
Remembering the legendary fashion designer and his life happenings, his early works from 1950s to the 70s and his later works from the 70s to late 90s, Amity School of Fashion Design and Technology along with AmiTrendz asked the students to make an inspiring and creative story on the 9th of January 2021.
 
The students of Semester 1 & 4 with each group of 5 had to create an illustration per student, of his works. The students of Semester 6 & M.Des with each group of 5 had to create a physical model and take pictures or videos of the making process. All works had to be created using available materials. 14 entries from Semester 1 & 4 and 3 entries from Semester 6 & M.Des were sent in. Best works were displayed on ASFDT's Instagram account as well as the StyleQ Digital Blog.
