“The world needs some excitement from fashion.” - Christian Lacroix
King of couture, master of the spectacle, Christian Lacroix, defined the 1980’s with his flamboyant gowns featuring extraordinary detail, embellishment, and over the top volume. Born in southern France, Lacroix studied art and originally set out to become a museum curator. His knowledge and passion for historical fashions can be seen clearly in his gowns that often featured corseted waists and rococo-era full skirts. His luxurious vintage creations offer a sense of opulence that most other designers can't match.
