The day the couture died

December 2 was a sad day for fashion and what I imagine was an impossibly difficult day for legendary fashion designer, Christian Lacroix who had to close shop on his prêt-à-porter and couture collections. It will continue (for now) as a licensing-only brand. The last collection of the king of couture was stunning as ever.

p.s. I am so sorry for being a bad blogger lately. My boyfriend and I share one laptop computer and he has been working on his thesis in the last couple of weeks. I will try and catch up with my reading at the weekend. Love you all. x

  5. He's such an innovator. I still associate him with Absolutely Fabulous sometimes ("it's Lacroix darling!") and being the ultimate in over-the-top glamour. I really hope he will be able to open his business again properly one day and I also hope this doesn't happen to other designers :/

  6. Dear Susan,

    That is a very sad day.
    Every time I think about Lacroix, reminds me of Edwina Absolutely Fabulous, squeezing into some lovely piece of his.
    I hope that you are having a lovely weekend dear.

    Hugs
    Carolyn
