This is the one we've all been waiting for! Tix are now on sale! https://tickets.modernismweek.com/f/mw20/cardin The award-winning House of Cardin - Pierre Cardin documentary is the Opening Night Gala at the Architecture Design Art Film Festival as a special Modernism Week 2020 event, right here in Palm Springs! Tickets are $15 for the movie only, $25 VIP ticket with reception and VIP seating. Alison Martino of Vintage Los Angeles will lead a Q&A with the filmmakers and their special guests to follow. Directed and produced by Palm Springs residents, P. David Ebersole and Todd Hughes (The Ebersole Hughes Company), the film premiered at the 2019 Venice Film Festival, receiving a standing ovation (with Pierre Cardin in attendance), and it recently swept the Cinefashion Film Awards, winning Best Film and Best Directing. Pierre Cardin - millions know the iconic logo and ubiquitous signature but few know the man behind the larger-than-life label. Cardin founded his fashion house in 1950, introduced the ‘bubble dress’ in 1954, ‘future fashion’ in the 1960s, the first couturier to be on Time Magazine’s cover in 1974, and the first couturier to license his name and produce a ready-to-wear line. What is the story behind this legendary icon? HOUSE OF CARDIN is a rare peek into the mind of a genius and his epic design empire, an authorized feature documentary chronicling the life and design of Cardin. A true original, Mr. Cardin granted the directors exclusive access to his archives and his empire, and unprecedented interviews at the sunset of a glorious career. The documentary features Pierre Cardin, Naomi Campbell, Sharon Stone, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Dionne Warwick, Philippe Starck and many other notables in the fashion industry including Palm Springs’ favorite designer, Trina Turk.
