Pierre Cardin (2 July 1922 – 29 December 2020) was a French-Italian fashion designer. He is known for what were his avant-garde style and Space Age designs. He preferred geometric shapes and motifs, often ignoring the female form. He advanced into unisex fashions, sometimes experimental, and not always practical. He founded his fashion house in 1950 and introduced the "bubble dress" in 1954.

A bubble skirt, also called tulip skirt or balloon skirt, is a voluminous skirt whose hem is tucked back under to create a “bubble effect” at the bottom. Popular in the 1950s.

His career was solidified at the 1951 Bal oriental.

Cardin also owned the Palais Bulles.

Apparently Cardin was mostly gay, but in the 1960s he had a four-year affair with actress Jeanne Moreau.
