Celebrating Azzedine Alaïa

“Fashion will last forever. It will exist always. It will exist in its own way in each era. I live in the moment.”

Remembering an icon. Rebellious in design and a longstanding champion of women and diversity, Tunisian designer Azzedine Alaïa was dubbed the ‘King of Cling’ for his form-fitting silhouettes that sculpted the female body and pushed him into prominence in the 80s. From Cindy and Kaia to Edie and Adwoa – tributes pour in with news of his passing at age 77, and here we celebrate his legacy.
