Theatrical, over-the-top design, and Renaissance-inspired outfits sum-up all things Christian Lacroix, as his launch onto the fashion map helped to define ’80s glamour. Lacroix first worked as an assistant at Hermès before he began his own fashion house in 1987, where he put the signature “pouf” skirt and sleeve on the map, as well as causing a stir with his fantasy creations. Lacroix continued to expand into ready-to-wear, lingerie, menswear, and more – earning himself a cult following.
