Balmain is a French fashion house started by Pierre Balmain (1914 - 1982). His family owned a company that sold drapery and his sisters and mother had a fashion boutique. While studying at the Ecole of Beaux Arts Pierre Balmain was more into designing of dresses than studying architecture and thus did not finish the studies. He then started working with Lucien Lelong and he opened the House of Balmain only in 1945. This fashion label also featured bell type of skirts similar to Dior's new look. This designer also dressed the stars of the time, such as Ava Gardner and Brigitte Bardot. His label was success and he opened his fashion brand shops in the United States as well and started to sell ready to wear fashion. This happened in year 1951. Elegant aesthetics of the brand had a worldwide success and his talent was recognized as he was also invited to design uniforms for Singapore Airlines look. Product Catalog
