Today many have forgotten the name of Andre Courreges, since his legacy has not been getting much attention, but the fact is a fact and Andre was one of the most influential designers of the 20th century. He studied from the brilliant Cristobal Balenciaga himself and his 1964 modernist ‘Space Age’ look was as phenomenal as that of New Look and he was credited from creating the one and only mini skirt. He has inspired the most well known designers of today and was one of the first designers to show the importance of ready-to-wear fashion. Looking at his works he has defined the modern futuristic 60s for me.
Andre Courreges has died on January 7, 2016 at the age of 92 and Rest in Peace kind sir! Here is a little tribute to his fantastic works that made history.
