Daring Darling

Algerian-born Yves Saint Laurent is regarded as one of the greatest French fashion designers of the twentieth-century. Interested in fashion from a very early age, Laurent submitted three sketches to a contest for young fashion designers organized by the International Wool Secretariat. Though only 14 years old at the time, he took third prize and traveled to Paris to receive his award. Here, he met Michel de Brunhoff, the editor-in-chief of Paris Vogue, who encouraged the young designer to relocate to Paris and study fashion.

Laurent followed Brunhoff's advice and moved to Paris to work for Christian Dior. Laurent's innate talent shone through and he became the head designer for the label at only twenty-one, after the untimely death of the master. Backed by this experience, Yves Saint Laurent founded his eponymous label in 1962 with partner Pierre Berge. Laurent produced clothes of striking beauty infused with classic sex appeal. From his famous Piet Mondrian shift dresses to his revolutionary tailored tuxedo suit for women, his collections and accessories soon became famed for their daring but elegant looks, a reputation that still holds true today.

Stay tuned and we will notify you when we start accepting entries for this giveaway.
