Renowned Tunisian-French designer Azzedine Alaïa passed away Saturday morning, leaving behind a powerful legacy in women’s fashion.
Alaïa’s work redefined creativity, breaking away from traditions of couture. He crafted his brand in his own vision, working at his own pace, choosing to forgo fashion week schedules. His legacy is built on his masterfully sculpted, innovative, body-hugging designs. His work transcended time, allowing him to work with every from Naomi Campell and Madonna to Michelle Obama.
Fashion’s most influential share their sympathies for the lost beloved designer.
