Karl Lagerfeld Passes at Age 85

Fashion shed tears of sadness on February 19, 2019 as the Creative Director & Designer Karl Lagerfeld, passed away. Ever since 1983, Karl has made statements in fashion from haute couture collections, timeless clothing, creative directions for major shoots, and so much more. Karl was known for his black sunglasses, fingerless gloves, and signature white hair. He has made a large impact with labels such as Chanel, Fendi, Chloe, Balmain, YSL, Valentino, Macy’s, H&M, and much more. If you took notice of the interlocking CC’s with Chanel, Karl was the mastermind behind the style pattern. 

To keep the legacy, Virginie Viard will be succeeding Karl. According to Chanel, Karl will be cremated without a ceremony.
