Famed fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent was born in August 1, 1936, and raised in Oran, Algeria. His talent for design became evident as a teenager and at the tender age of 17, he left for Paris with the determination to work in a major fashion house. His persistence led to a meeting with the director of Vogue magazine, Michel de Brunhoff, who took a shine to the precocious boy. Impressed with his sketches, he had several of them published. The magazine director encouraged fashion designer, Yves Saint Laurent to enter a prestigious fashion school to hone his raw talent. After his stint was through, de Brunhoff procured an introduction between Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior. The encounter eventually led to one of the most creative and successful alliances in fashion history.
