Designer Pierre Cardin – the fashion icon who dressed The Beatles – dies aged 98

Iconic fashion designer Pierre Cardin – the man who dressed The Beatles – has died.

He was aged 98.

Italian born Cardin strongly influenced fashion in the 60s and 70s.


He was a master designer as well as a superb tailor.

He was capable of not only creating a masterpiece but making it as well.

Cardin re-designed men’s suits after the post-war period.

The Beatles wore his high buttoned collarless jackets.

Cardin is credited with creating the “brand name”.

He said: “I wanted my name to become a brand and not just a label.

“It’s all the same to me whether I am doing sleeves for dresses or table legs.”

The Pierre Cardin logo went on to be known throughout the world – whether for his fashion, furniture, or aircraft interiors.

Following his death, his official Instagram account posted one of his quotes:

“I have always worked in my own style, which is different from all others.

“It was always my intention to be different, because that is the only way to last.”
