André Oliver (1932-1993). French fashion designer, and Pierre Cardin’s right hand man. He spent his whole career, except for a short spell producing his own creations in New York, bringing balance to Cardin‘s avant-garde creations with his moderation and classic taste. He studied at the École des Beaux Arts in Paris and then worked as Cardin’s assistant, designing the men’s collections and also taking an active part in the creation of the women’s collections.
