interests. After learning the tailoring craft, he worked for Schiaparelli and Lelong, the couture houses.  Then he met Christian Dior in 1946 and worked on the collection that was spread around the world in 1947 as the New Look.  At the same time, he did costumes for the ballet and for such films as Jean Cocteau's Beauty and the Beast, Orpheus, and Oedipus Rex.  In the 1960's he emerged, along with André Courrèges, as an exponent of a futuristic, Space Age look. Men were landing on the moon and clothes had to look ahead.

"It's not my job to make 1930's, folkloric, Turkish or Russian looks," he says, disposing of some recent fashion trends. He explains his job as "creating shapes and forms of clothes that are contemporary and that everyone can wear."  A student at a lecture he gave recently at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York asked him, "How do you get inspiration for a new collection?"  His answer was immediate. "I go to my workroom and I think, 'Whatis it that women have not had available to them?' and then I try to make it," he answered.

He is proud of some of his firsts in fashion. In the 1950's he opened ready-to-wear boutiques for men and women in Paris, and he also made clothes that were sold in Printemps, the large department store. "I was criticized for being vulgar-couturiers shouldn't be concerned with such things," he recalls. "Now everybody does ready-to-wear collections."

In the 1960's, he spurred the so-called peacock revolution with his men's fashions.  A lot of trendy and not so trendy men all over the world ended up in his Edwardian-type closely fitted suits and his blazers which had "PC" on the buttons.  He was criticized for that too, but he points out that today Dior, Balmain, Saint Laurent and other women's couture designers are doing men's wear.

"That is the pattern," he muses. "When I start something it is a scandal, but then everybody else takes it up." It doesn't seem to upset him unduly.  While he would like to be loved and understood, he is reconciled to being merely successful.
