He opened his own couturier in Paris in the 1950’s and later opened a shop in New York where he was popular among society women that desired French fashions without a transatlantic trip. His smartly tailored garments were worn by the likes of Jacqueline Kennedy and the Duchess of Windsor. In 1962 he began a partnership with dress manufacturer Sam Friedlander, designing his couture-caliber cocktail and evening dresses that sold for the equivalent of $1000-$4000 in today's dollar.
