Celebrities and journalists paying tribute on Twitter include actress Mia Farrow, TV host Charles V Payne, The New York Times’ fashion critic Vanessa Friedman and journalist Nina Garcia.
Pierre Cardin designed clothing that was a work of art. This picture was taken the year before I came to Rosemary’s Baby for the filming of a movie whose cardigan was the most memorable for me for the eye-catching, impossibly comfortable clothes. I think of him as a kind man. If he could rest in peace. https://t.co/0rHUbT44dx

Pierre Cardin died today and I am reminded of my adolescence when I started wearing cologne. I graduated to the big leagues when I bought my first Pierre Cardin in Walworth. pic.twitter.com/BMn2f3njr3

Pierre Cardin Bio
Pierre Cardin was born in July 1922 to a wealthy French wine merchant. His parents were French citizens of Italian descent.
They moved from Italy to France when Cardin was old.
Cardin worked for some time as a tailor apprentice in his early teens and later studied architecture in Paris. She also worked as a model and stage dancer.
In 1946, he worked with Christian Dyer, before Dyer became a famous designer. Cardin started his own fashion house a few years after working with Dyer.
Her fashion house has designed masks and costumes for Jean Cocteau’s 1946 film Beauty and the Beast (La Bell at La Bete).
As a fashion designer, Cardin was famous for her bold designs exploring future themes.
From perfumes to clothes and accessories, she was more famous for her branded products.
He started the practice of selling designer clothing in department stores starting in the 1950s.
He was expelled from the Syndicate de la Couture in the aristocratic French Chamber for violating the guild’s policy when he teamed up with a department store to sell his goods.
But Cardin was neutral. He began branding perfumes and accessories such as luxury products and branding of essential products such as food and household items.
He successfully followed his sales and marketing strategies for decades and despite criticism by protesters who claimed he was undermining the value of his brand name.
Cardin also played a leading role in creating designer clothing for men and had high-profile clients such as Mick Jagger and Rex Harrison.
She helped mentor other fashion designers, such as Jean-Paul Galtier.
Cardin later entered other lines of business, including fast food, restaurants and real estate.
