Paco Rabanne Designer History:
Francisco "Paco" Rabaneda Cuervo, better and widely referred to as Paco Rabanne was born in San Sebastian, the Spanish Basque region on 18 February 1934. He spent his childhood under the bombing of Spain, and later fled Spain and went to France with his mother when the Spanish Civil war broke out. They went on exile for the reason that his family was republican. Prior to that, his mother was positioned and worked as a chief seamstress for the renowned Fashion House Balenciaga.
At first he had an architect's education but eventually grew to be identified as the –terrible child-(L'enfant Terrible) of the French fashion world in the 1960s.
Paco stated, he experienced his first supernatural encounter at the age of seven and this basically affected him for the rest of his life. Up to 1966, Courreges, Cardin, Balenciaga, and Givenchy inspired him and purchased his drawings and Gerard Pipart, who at the time had recently moved to Nina Ricci, sent him a few designs to embroider. Together with his entire family, he created extravagant buttons designed of plaited leather, valuable gemstones, and even vermicelli or coffee beans stuck to Rhodoid, then coated in different colors.
