Trained as an architect in Paris, Paco Rabanne rejected the world of couture, choosing metal rings and plastic rather than needle, thread and cloth. His designs, from garments made of aluminium to paper "throwaway" dresses, were described as unwearable. In the 1960s his accessories - sunglasses made of fur and huge, zany earrings - were a great commercial success. Paco Rabanne has had a great impact on the work of young designers today. This is an exploration of the designer's career and creations.
