House of Cardin | Virtual Film

Official Selection of the 2020 Frameline Festival

Italian-born and French-cultured, Cardin carved a name (and a fashion house) for himself, following notable work designing costumes for Jean Cocteau’s 1946 masterpiece “Beauty and the Beast” and guidance from friend Christian Dior.

“House of Cardin” traces the man many within the film will refer to as a genius from his early days to the formation of his own company in 1950 to his blissful current existence at the age of 97. With interviewees as wide-ranging as Naomi Campbell, Sharon Stone, Alice Cooper, Dionne Warwick, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Jenny Shimizu, this up-tempo homage celebrates Cardin’s idea of global fashion and his pioneering attempts to diversify the catwalks of Paris with women of color modeling his signature looks.
