My first designer was Karl Lagerfeld. I didn’t meet him; I knew his designs and some of his works with Chanel, H&M and his eponymous fashion brands. His name, platinum white ponytail, spotless 4 inches white collar, biker gloves and sunglasses are unforgettable. He was the King of fashion and his classic look and style had no competition.
He is dead now – at age 85. For more than 50 years, Karl Lagerfeld changed fashion through his creativity, fashion ideas and leadership.
He stood out as a photographer, craftsman, director, entrepreneur. His extravagant fashion shows were famous; he designed and created entirely new sets as his runway. From the Chanel Airport to a runway set in a stable and another at the beach, his imagination was wide.
He was powerful, creative and passionate about his work and will always be remembered as an unbeatable fashion force, an influential fashion icon and inspiration.
