Millions know the iconic logo and ubiquitous signature but few know the man behind the larger than life label. Ultimately we seek to answer the question: Who is Pierre Cardin? What is the story behind this legendary icon? House of Cardin is a rare peek into the mind of a genius, an authorized feature documentary chronicling the life and design of Pierre Cardin. Mr. Cardin has granted the directors the exclusive access to his archives and his empire and promises unprecedented interviews at the sunset of a glorious career.

The Ebersole Hughes Company is a unique creative collaboration from husband/husband team P. David Ebersole & Todd Hughes, each an accomplished writer, director, producer. Credits include work with HBO, Showtime, IFC, Fox TV, Sundance Channel, and Lifetime. They're known for a colorful approach to their subjects, ranging from the drummer of Courtney Love's band Hole to the mother of Cher, from people obsessed with Kubrick's The Shining to a public determined to keep a myth of Jayne Mansfield's curse alive.

"Making House of Cardin was the adventure of a lifetime. We've come to know Pierre as a friend, and we've been inspired to live, love and create by his wisdom and generosity of spirit. We take the great privilege and responsibility of telling his epic story very seriously. It is no easy task to fit a 97-year life and 70 years of creation into a 95-minute film. It is impossible to catalog all his work and achievement, but we tackled the challenge of asking the key question that guided us throughout: Who is Pierre Cardin?" [P. David Ebersole, Todd Hughes]
