André Courrèges, the iconic french designer famous for his futuristic vision way back in the the sixties has died at the age of 92.

The designer worked a decade at Balenciaga before launching his own Maison de Couture in 1961. Along with the British designer Mary Quant, women can thank him for popularizing the mini skirt and see-through gowns.

With colletions named Space Age and Moon Girl, his creations were everything except boring. He is also one of the first who dressed his models with go-go boots made of vinyl and plastic along with pioneering the use of funky accessories such as googles and even a helmet hat in his works.

“To make something that is true to life — that is what work is all about,” the designer said in 1963. “I don’t care if I stay small or grow large, make money or not. That doesn’t matter. What matters is the truth; to create a true thing.”
