In the early 80's Christian Lacroix was hailed as the new emerging designer of contemporary Haute Couture. And when he opened his own House in 1987 there was no doubt that his extravagent lavish and exotic 'larger than life' creations were the mecca for the new money society of the 1980's. Lacroix has no boundaries in his artistic interpretation to create fashion; fashions that have no limits in terms of expense; use of exquisite brocades and patchwork silks. Lacroix designs the most impressive, unique and astounding ballgowns that one can only describe as 'masterpieces'. One only has to reflect back to the times of the French Court at Versailles to see where Lacroix begets his inspiration.
