Yves Saint Laurent

Fashion Designer

Yves Saint Laurent (1936-2008), was a French fashion designer who, in 1961, founded his eponymous fashion label with his partner Pierre Bergé. He is regarded as being among the foremost fashion designers of the 20th century. He is credited with having introduced the tuxedo suit for women, and was known for his use of non-European cultural references, and non-white models.

The fashion label the designer founded has continued following his death, with a number of creative directors appointed to the house including Tom Ford, Stefano Pilati, Hedi Slimane and Anthony Vaccarello. Under Slimane's tenure, the house became known solely as Saint Laurent (dropping the Yves).
