Culture tip:

Yves Saint-Laurent was a French fashion desingner who, in 1961, founded his famous fashion label.

Yves Saint-Laurent can be credited with both spurring the couture's rise from 1960s ashes and with finally rendering ready-to-wear (prêt-à-porter).

Saint Laurent's imprint and importance on French culture was cemented when he was appointed Grand Officer of the Legion d'honnerur by French President, Nicolas Sarkozy.
