About Jacques Heim

Jacques Heim was born on January 29, 1899, in Paris France.  His parents operated the House of Heim, a high-end furrier and Heim joined the firm in the 1020s turning it into a haute couture salon.  He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts and later opened his own fashion house in the city. He gained fame for his elegant and sophisticated designs, which appealed to the upper class.

In 1946, Heim designed what is considered the first modern bikini, naming it “Atome,” meaning atom in French, to reflect the era of atomic age. The bikini, a two-piece swimsuit revealing more skin than any previous design, caused a sensation upon its introduction.

Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, Heim continued designing clothing for women, maintaining the popularity of his fashion house among affluent clients. He retired in the early 60s and passed away in 1967.

Today, people remember Heim as a pioneering designer who played a key role in revolutionizing women’s fashion with his bold designs, including the iconic biki
