Gemma Moran, Fashion Lecturer at the University of Salford, paid tribute to legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, who has passed away age 85.
“Mostly famed for his time with Chanel as well as many other collaborations and his own label to achieve all he did was down to his incredible work ethic. His early pieces at Chloe could make anyone cry, his turnaround at Chanel is one of the greatest stories ever, to make a tired house relevant and the sales fly through the roof. Real designers have the greatest respect for him, as they do for his schoolmate Azzedine Alaia and the other designer that rose with him, Yves Saint Laurent.”
