_______________________________________________________________________________________________Andre Courreges, known as the "space age" designer, opened his fashion house in 1961 after training with Balenciaga. Producing stark, futurisitic but quintessestially swinging 60s fashions, he created clothes that were precision cut and unadorned: mini dresses and trouser suits in white and silver, mid-calf boots, trapeze dresses, goggles and catsuits.
