Fashion fades and trends are every changing but Yves' forward thinking set the bar for women around the world. With the introduction of his elegant and sassy trouser suits in the 7o's, one could say he single handily catapulted women's wear into the 20th century. Saint Laurent was one of the first designers to use African-American models giving the fashion world a contemporary kick in the rear. With YSL's, Rive Gauche, Saint Laurent aimed to make his couture line more accessible to the masses. Always ahead of the curve and committed to making fashion for the everyday woman, Yves Saint Laurent will be sorely missed.
