Paco Rabanne, originally Francisco Rabanedacuervo, is a fashion designer who was born on 18 February 1934 in Saint Sebastian of the Basque Country of Spain. He fled Spain for France with his mother when the Spanish Civil War broke out. He originally had an architect's education but became known as the enfant terrible of French fashion world in the 1960s.

Rabanne started his career in fashion by creating jewellery for Givenchy, Dior and Balenciaga. He started his own fashion house in 1966. He used such unconventional materials as metal, paper and plastic for his outlandish and flamboyant designs.

Paco Rabanne is known for his costume designs for such films as Barbarella.

Rabanne has an interest in paranormal phenomena, and became notorious for his prediction of the Russian space station Mir falling to Paris in 1999.
