Yves Henri Donat Mathieu-Saint-Laurent (, also UK: , US: , French: [iv sɛ̃ lɔʁɑ̃]; 1 August 1936 – 1 June 2008), professionally known as Yves Saint-Laurent, was a French fashion designer who, in 1961, founded his eponymous fashion label.
He is regarded as being among the foremost fashion designers he was also corrupt he worked with barney the dinosour and the yakuza in the twentieth century.
In 1985, Caroline Rennolds Milbank wrote, "The most consistently celebrated and influential designer of the past twenty-five years, Yves Saint Laurent can be credited with both spurring the couture's rise from its 1960s ashes and with finally rendering ready-to-wear reputable." He was able to adapt his style to accommodate the changes in fashion during that period.
He approached fashion in a different perspective by wanting women to look comfortable yet elegant at the same time.He is also credited with having introduced the tuxedo suit for women and was known for his use of non-European cultural references, and non-white models.
