As Karl Lagerfeld has affected the world of fashion


It is difficult to challenge impact which was exerted on fashion by Karl Lagerfeld. "I am a walking label. My name not Lagerfeld, but Leyblfeld" - says the designer and admits that he likes to resemble "a caricature of himself", and the Venice ball for this person in a mask lasts all the year round. He was born in Hamburg, has begun to choose independently to himself clothes in 4 years, and already in 14 has moved to Paris to devote itself(himself) to creation of clothes. Though his first tests were cool welcomed by critics (the debut collection for Jean Patou has been considered "too defiant"), it has continued the work in a crazy rhythm which holds to this day. Lagerfeld calls fashion one of the hobbies occupying the most part of life. Among other hobbies - an illustration, reading, the photo and transformations of life into a beautiful ritual. On a birthday of the designer of Vogue UA remembers milestone events from Karl Lagerfeld's life which have affected the world of fashion.

B 1954 Pierre Balmain has announced a competition on the best design of a coat. Has won it not who other as Karl Lagerfeld to whom at that time was only 16 (or 21, the mystery of date of his birth is still not solved). The young designer has worked in the house of Balmain more than three years, but has left to spend some time in "studying of life".

B to the 1965th when the house of Fendi was associated only with rich housewives in fur coats, Lagerfeld became a breath of fresh air. He has thought up the well-known emblem - the connected FF which became a brand symbol, as well as the fur coats with such pattern imitating a leopard. "Fendi is the Roman version me, - the designer says. - I do here what I don't afford in Paris". Lagerfeld became the invited couturier, the first in the history of Fendi, who is at the head of a brand of already 50 years.

of Gaby Anyon, the foundress of Chloe fashion House, has employed the young designer in 1965 and here he has worked even till 1992. During this time distinctive features of his designs - love to the historical quote, spontaneity, vivacity - became symbols of Chloé.

In the 1980th Chanel carried wives of doctors, but Kayser wasn't afraid to risk reputation and has headed fashion house in the 1982nd. He has rethought classical models, has added a new cut, unusual details, impudence, sexuality, and the most important - Lagerfeld's style. The house of Chanel became in own way ideal platform for creativity, and the brand has risen from the ashes. "Koko would begin to hate it. She has created a certain image and I have the right to improve him. I have to maintain the reputation. I have to go from what was Chanel to what it has to or could be" - Lagerfeld who became at a brand wheel 12 years later to Gabrielle's death says.

"Fashion is what you can't operate", - Lagerfeld says. Time of changes has suddenly come, whether you like it or not. If you don't make it, someone else will make for you - such is Lagerfeld's philosophy. He has based Karl Lagerfeld in 1984, but his name became a brand even since work with Chloe.
