Renowned French fashion designer Pierre Cardin died at 98. The renowned fashion expert and the pioneer passed away, according to a report by France’s Fine Arts Academy. Cardin, known for his awe-inspiring futuristic work inspired a revolution on the 1960’s-1970’s runway. While the fashion tycoon started off at France’s top couture house Christian Dior, he later ventured out into his own and began curating his own breathtaking pieces. During the later years of his life, however, Cardin stopped showcasing runways and instead remained rather active at events and formal engagements for designers he had previously taken under his wing.
