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