Pierre Cardin, born Pietro Cardin; 2 July 1922 is a French fashion designer.
Cardin is known for his avant-garde style and his Space Age designs. He prefers geometric shapes and motifs, often ignoring the female form. He advanced into unisex fashions, sometimes experimental, and not always practical. He founded his fashion house in 1950 and introduced the "bubble dress" in 1954.
He was designated UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador in 1991.
On 16 October 2009, Cardin was nominated Goodwill Ambassador of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
