TRIBUTE TO AZZEDINE ALAÏA
Today 18 November 2017 the visionary fashion designer and couturier Azzedine Alaïa had died in Paris.
Vogue Editor Edward Enninful said that “He will be missed by all the women around the world who wore his clothes”.
Alaïa started his career in 1957 as a tailleur for Christian Dior but only after few days he model to work for Guy Laroche for only two seasons. Later he worked for Thierry Mugler until he opened his first atelier in his little apartment in Paris in late 1970. For almost 20 years he dressed celebrities and members of the international jet-set from Marie Helène de Rothschild to Greta Garbo.
In 1984 become the Best Designer of the Year and Best Collection of the Year voted by the Oscars de la Mode by the French Ministry of Culture.
His career had a turn over when the fashion editor of Elle magazine supported him in their editorials.
In 1996 he participated at the Biennale della Moda in Italy, Florence.
From 2000 to 2007 he worked in partnership with Prada who belongs to Richmond Group.
Alaïa is smart enough to not only care about people and press gossip but hehe shows his style when he has something to show. It was a free spirit and did what he wanted to do.
We would like to remember him as an icon of the fashion industry.
