Christian Lacroix (°1951) studied art sciences in Paris and wrote his thesis on fashion in 17th century paintings. Under influence of his loved ones, he started his career as a fashion designer in 1987. His first collections always had shock value, but were embraced by his peers, the press and the public. He is seen as the saviour of French haute couture. In his work he always honours historic costume design in combination with contrasting bright colours.
