"I would like to express much more violence in my work."
Christian was an assistant at Hermes, collaborated with the couturier of the Tokyo Imperial Court, and then joined the House of Patou in 1981. Five years later, he launched his own label with the bouffant, or "pouf," a milestone in fashion history. His label, often regarded as one of the fastest growing brands in the LVMH universe has spawned a line of perfume, linens, and children's clothing. In 2002, Lacroix was appointed Artistic Director of the House of Pucci, which, since his arrival, has been very successful.
