Two days ago the media published a terrible news “Karl Lagerfeld dies aged 85”.
I am still thrilled and shocked. I can’t believe that Karl Lagerfeld, one of the most iconic personality, the most powerful fashion designer, passed away.
Unfortunately, I have never had an opportunity to work with Karl Lagerfeld but certainly it was one of my dream to meet him in person. His unquestionable talent and professionalism will be missed.
Karl Lagerfeld was born on 10 September 1933 in Hamburg. From his early year, he was working in fashion and dedicated his entire life to it. His vision and passion changed the world.
He worked with the most famous fashion houses, as the creative director of Chanel and as the creative director of Fendi. Additionally, he created his own brand called ‘Karl Lagerfeld’.
His characteristic style – black glasses, white collar and fingerless gloves, would be remembered forever. Karl had a legendary charisma and was known for a sharp humor, but that is why everyone loved him as KARL LAGERFELD and adored his work, style, fashion and photography. His entire career and achievements had a huge impact on the 20th and the21st century.
I made a research and found top #10 the most inspiring quotes of Karl Lagerfeld. I believe those words willmake all of us to think.
You can apply them in every aspect of our life, no matter if you work in fashion business or not. They are unique and timeless for me.
“The only love that I really believe in is a mother’s love for her children.”
“Never use the word “cheap”. Today everybody can look chic in inexpensive clothes (the rich buy them too). There is good clothing design on every level today. You can be the chicest thing in the world in a T-shirt and jeans — it’s up to you.”
“Don’t look to the approval of others for your mental stability”
“Stuff your brain with knowledge.”
“I want everyone to wear what they want and mix it in their own way. That, to me, is what is modern.”
“Music gives color to the air of the moment.”
“Keep the best, forget the rest.”
“I like to reinvent myself — it’s part of my job.”
“I love classic beauty. It’s an idea of beauty with no standard.”
“I’m very much down to earth, just not this earth.”
Karl and his extraordinariness will be missed. The world has lost one of the greatest.
