Yves St. Laurent: A Fashion Revolutionary

Yves Saint Laurent.  Hero.  Genius.  Inspiring.  All in all, he was, in my opinion, the greatest designer to walk the face of this earth.  He was, and indeed still is, one of the greatest names in fashion.  And although he has passed on, his brand lives on to remind us of his incredible creative genius and astounding impact on the world of modern fashion.  

"Fashions fade, style is eternal"
 Yves St. Laurent 

“Chanel gave women freedom. Yves Saint Laurent gave them power.”
Pierre Bergé, Saint Laurent’s longtime partner

“Mr. Saint Laurent revolutionised modern fashion with his understanding of youth, sophistication and relevance. His legacy will always be remembered.”
Francisco Costa, Calvin Klein designer

“Yves Saint Laurent invented everything, revisited everything, transformed everything to the service of a passion, to let woman shine and to free her beauty and mystery.”
François Pinault, founder and former CEO of the fashion group PPR
