The legendary fashion designer Pierre Cardin, who is 92, is opening his own museum today.



The 'Museum Pierre Cardin' will house 'Past, Present, Future' a permanent exhibition that will show 200 models wearing his designs and accessories. His first collection was in 1953, and his designs are known for being geometric, avant-garde, and in the 1960s drawing on outer space for inspiration.

He started his career in 1945 in Paris working with Elsa Schiaparelli - then he became head of Christian Dior's atelier in 1947. By 1950 Pierre Cardin had launched his own label bearing his name.

Museum Pierre Cardin will open today at Le Marais, Paris, France
