History of Christian LaCroix:

In 1987, Christian Lacroix launched his eponymous fashion house with the backing of LVMH magnate Bernard Arnault and his first haute couture show was a runaway success. Critics, so used to the minimalist Japanese aesthetic that had dominated the scene throughout the decade, were blown away by its playfulness with colors, fabrics, intricate detailing and theatricality. Central to the Parisian’s collection was the pouf, an inventive, exaggeratedly puffy skirt, which set down a marker for a new era in fashion. Hailed as a design savior, Lacroix quickly expanded his operations to include a ready-to-wear line, jeans, perfume, menswear, childrenswear, lingerie, and homeware.
