Millions know the iconic logo and ubiquitous signature, but few know the man behind the larger than life label. House of Cardin is a rare peek into the mind of a genius, an authorized feature documentary chronicling the life and design of Cardin. A true original, Mr. Cardin has granted the directors, P. David Ebersole and Todd Hughes exclusive access to his archives and his empire, and unprecedented interviews at the sunset of a glorious career.
House of Cardin made its World Premiere at the Venice Film Festival, where it was nominated for the Queer Lion Award. It went on to win the Lifetime Achievement, Best Fashion Feature Film, and Best Director of a Feature Fashion Film Awards at the Cinemoi Cinefashion Film Awards and was also nominated for the Gold Q-Hugo Award at the Chicago International Film Festival.
