As a little boy Yves Saint Laurent used to spend his time scetching and painting to avoid his so called “class mates” from bullying him. He soon was drawing dresses to his mother and at the age of 13 he won a very prestigious designer-competition.

Around that time a certain Christian Dior noticed that this boy had talent and natural skills for fashion and design, which ended in Dior reqruiting Laurent to his fashion concern.
