Paris, France – Last night in Paris, the crème de la crème of the international fashion elite met at the world headquarters of the late couturier, Azzedine Alaïa to celebrate his legacy. Among those present were his spiritual daughter, supermodel Naomi Campbell and close friend, fellow supermodel and fellow “Alaia Girl”, Cindy Crawford. Also joining them was fashion’s next modeling sensation, Kaia Gerber, who is a dead ringer for her supermodel mother.
The event was organized by the house of Alaïa. It featured some of Alaia’s most recent work including dresses and gowns worn in the last show by Naomi Campbell.
Azzedine Alaïa is revered by the fashion world as the couturier of couturiers. When he organized his shows, even the kaiser Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel and Fendi is known for having been among the A-listers in attendance.
This writer will never forget the first time where he heard the name “ALAÏA”. It was during the robbery scene in the 1991 hit film “Clueless“. In it the actress Alicia Silverstone pleaded with a gun-wielding thief to not make her ruin her Alaia dress because he is “a totally important designer”.
MAY THE MEMORY OF AZZEDINE ALAÏA AND HIS CREATIVE GENIUS LIVE ON FOREVER…
