Yves Henri Donat Mathieu-Saint-Laurent, known as Yves Saint Laurent was an Algerian-born French fashion designer who was arguably considered one of the leading names in French fashion in the 20th century. Yves started at the House of Dior on mundane tasks, such as decorating the studio and designing accessories. Eventually, however, he was allowed to submit sketches for the couture collection; with every passing season, more of his sketches were accepted by Dior. In August 1957, Dior met with Yves's mother to tell her that he had chosen Yves to succeed him as designer. His mother later said that she had been confused by the remark, as Dior was only 52 years old at the time. Both she and her son were surprised when in October of that year Dior died at a health spa in northern Italy of a massive heart attack.

Yves found himself at the age of 21 the head designer of the House of Dior after the death of Christian Dior. His Spring 1958 collection almost certainly saved the House from financial ruin; the straight line of his creations, a softer version of Dior's New Look, catapulted him to international stardom with what would later be known as the 'trapeze dress', which included dresses with a narrow shoulder and flared gently at the bottom. It was at this time that he shortened his surname to "Saint Laurent", as the international press found his hyphenated triple name difficult to spell. After years at Dior, Saint Laurent started his own fashion house.

The internationally acclaimed exhibit Yves Saint Laurent: The Retrospective will make its only North American stop at the Denver Art Museum, March 25July 8, 2012. This sweeping retrospective of the designer's 40 years of creativity features a stunning selection of 200 haute couture outfits along with numerous photographs, drawings, and films that illustrate the development of Saint Laurent's style and the historical foundations of his work.

Organized thematically, the presentation melds design and art to explore the full arc of Saint Laurent's career, from his first days at Dior in 1958 through the splendor of his final runway collection in 2002. Highlights include:

  • The Gender Revolution galleries, where visitors will see how Saint Laurent bent (and sometimes broke) the rules of what women were expected to wear crafting the wardrobe for today's modern woman;
  • The Yves Saint Laurent and Women section, displaying the clothing of the historic women who wore and supported Saint Laurent, including Catherine Deneuve, Princess Grace of Monaco, and Paloma Picasso;
  • The Last Ball section, featuring exquisite evening dresses from the glory days of haute couture complete with a red carpet;
  • and the Colors of Yves Saint Laurent gallery, where guests will enjoy vibrant examples from his collections and hundreds of fabric samples.
