A French fashion designer known for his modern design is Andre Courreges born on March 9, 1923 in France. Courreges had his first fashion show in 1961 which featured his little white dress and a pants suit. In 1964 he launched his Space Age collection. He did not designed his dresses, he built them. Cloths were geometric and included boots, goggles, and hems that wee three inches above the knees. The features of his unclutter look ran through the fashion world and the miniskirt became a standby.
Courreges tights became a range in 1967 and tights are still in vogue today. His later creations included parkas, tennis dresses and sweater pants. He designed beach clothes and mechanic style coveralls. He designed a glow-in-the-dark jersey dress and a line of swimsuits held together by thin strings on the sides. He used bright acid colors and designs of triangles and squares. After he launched his space-age collection in 1964 everyone was wearing plastic skirts and jackets, crash helmets, helmets and white boots.
