Pierre Cardin Runway Show Sparkles at The Breakers
by Andrea Carneiro, Communications Manager
Legendary fashion designer Pierre Cardin created a spectacular runway show for the Preservation Society in mid-June, featuring 90 looks that demonstrated the range of his work and highlighted some of his most admired projects.
Unable to attend personally as planned because of a fall, M. Cardin sent his closest confidantes in his place to oversee the show in the Great Hall of The Breakers. They included Director of Haute Couture Maryse Gaspard, Creative Director (and nephew) Rodrigo Basilicati, and Matthew Gonder, a close friend and headliner at Maxim's Restaurant in Paris (owned by M. Cardin), who emceed the runway show.
Following the show, guests enjoyed a champagne reception on the loggia, including a birthday cake to celebrate M. Cardin's 95th birthday, and signed cards that were sent to M. Cardin in Paris.
