Yves Saint Laurent was an extremely popular and innovative fashion designer who was born in French Algeria in 1936. In his early years, Saint Laurent enjoyed creating very complex paper dolls and within a few years as a teenager, he started designing dresses for his sisters and mother. While in his late teens, Saint Laurent moved to Paris to attend the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, where his designs quickly caught the attention of the most prominent members of the haute couture community in Paris. While still in his teens, he also took first place in a design competition, and from that point on, his career in the French fashion world accelerated.
Soon thereafter, Saint Laurent went to work for the House of Dior. Within a few years and shortly before Dior died in 1957, Saint Laurent was chosen by Dior himself to become his successor as head designer. Saint Laurent founded his own fashion house in 1961, which went on to become the iconic brand that still exists today. Yves Saint Laurent products include luxury fashion collections, read-to-wear clothing, handbags, shoes, boots, and accessories for men and women.
