Christian Lacroix
Christian Marie Marc Lacroix (French pronunciation: ​[kʁistjɑ̃ lakʁwa]; born 16 May 1951) is a French fashion designer who was born in Arles, Bouches-du-Rhône in southern France. At a young age he began sketching costumes and fashions. Lacroix graduated from high school in 1969 and moved to Montpellier, to study Art History at the University of Montpellier. In 1971, he enrolled at the Sorbonne in Paris. While working on a dissertation on dress in French 18th-century painting, Lacroix also pursued a program in museum studies at the École du Louvre. His aspiration during this time was to become a museum curator. It was during this time he met his future wife Françoise Rosenthiel, whom he married in 1974. In 1987, he opened his own haute couture house.
