In memory of: The fashion world mourns the death of Azzedine Alaïa

The beloved and iconic couturier has reportedly passed away in Paris. Legendary designer Azzedine Alaïa has passed away at the age of 77, according to French publication Le Point. Born in Tunisia, Alaïa rose to fame in the '80s, quickly becoming a wardrobe favorite of celebrities, supermodels and fashion elites. He became known as the "King of Cling" for his flattering knit garments that molded to the body of the wearer. After founding his line in 1979, Alaïa quickly openend boutiques in New York and Beverly Hills. He was also a top-selling label for many of fashion's biggest retailers, despite the fact that his insistence on controlling every step of the creative process sometimes meant deliveries were sporadic.
Following the death of his twin sister in 1992, Alaïa pulled back into semi-retirement for a few years. He always refused to participate in the standard fashion schedule, instead producing his collections at his own pace. His last show, a couture collection presented in July of this year, was his first in six years and was incredibly well-received by the press. Alaïa is widely regarded as one of the biggest influences in modern fashion design; while he will be deeply missed. His legacy will undoubtedly live on through the many talented, young designers who grew up studying his work. We're sending our deepest condolences to Alaïa's family and friends at this time.
