Today, Trend Hunter pays hommage to Yves Saint Laurent, a legendary trend setter who has now passed away.
Born in 1936, Yves Saint Laurent moved to Paris in 1954 to take design courses, he caught the eye of Christian Dior and was hired as his assistant. At the age of twenty-one, he took the reins of the House of Dior in 1957 and swiftly rose to triumphant fame with his Trapeze line. In 1958, he met Pierre BergÃ©, then a theater director and stage producer, who went on to manage his career. With BergÃ©'s help, Saint Laurent founded his own maison de haute couture.
