The story of the French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent has been told long and wide throughout the fashion world. He is the person that changed the high fashion industry forever. The designer is one of the most valued in fashion, and his clothes continue to be preferred for special occasions and events in Hollywood.
In fact, the name of the designer is Yves Mathieu Saint Laurent. Yves nationality is Algerian and he was born in the city of Oran, not Paris, as most people assume. As a child, he secretly painted and laid the foundations of his future glory without even suspecting about it. He often hid in his imaginary world, where he made various drawings and different paper dolls so he could try his designs on them.
With his tranquility, moderation and boyish hair, Yves caused instant sympathy from the people who met him for the first time. At the age of 16, he won 3rd place for fashion design at the “Secretariat de la Laine” contest and went to Paris with his mother to receive his prize. There he met the French director of Vogue Magazine, Michel de Brunhoff.
Yves returns to Oran to finish his high school education but continues to keep in touch with Michael. He regularly sends him fashion and theatrical sketches. After taking his final exams and achieving 20 points out of 20 in a philosophical essay, he goes to Paris and stays there. Again, he receives a distinction in the fashion contest “Secrétariat de la Laine”, but this time he won first place! Then Michael de Brunhoff decided to introduce him to Christian Dior, who appointed him as his assistant. That’s how young Yves stays under his wing and is studying from him for 2 years.
In 1957 he founded his own fashion house … And this is how he started impressing us for 50 years!!!
