Known in the 1960s for his bold space age designs for a wealthy mod clientele, the French couturier Louis Féraud's break came when Bridgette Bardot wore an off the shoulder cotton pique dress of his, Grace Kelly and the Parisian elite were more of his patrons. Twice, in 1978 and 1984 he won the coveted 'Golden Thimble' award for his haute couture collections. The thread that runs throughout his work are a penchant for bold and fun design but with a sense of femininity and elegance.
