Tragedy struck the fashion industry yesterday when the Creative Director of Chanel and Fendi died at 85. The German designer, Karl Lagerfeld was the brain behind many of the greatest moments in fashion history. Many of his celebrity supporters took to social media to share their best moments and grief.

The luxury brands have been incorporated in rap songs to royals and are considered two of the biggest brands in the fashion world. Before “Fendi prints on” was rapped about and everyone had Chun Li vibes and Fendi fever, the fashion genius had been making waves since the 80s.

Karl’s life ended with an appreciation for Arab beauty by using inspiration from ancient Egypt in his pre-fall 2018/2019 show. Every fashionista you’d look up most definitely flaunts a Chanel bag. If you’re a true fashion lover, you’ve probably fallen in love with the luxury house and dreamed of owning any of its designs despite the hefty price tag. His brand and personal stores, beside Chanel and Fendi, live on in the Middle East and will forever be on our wish lists.
