He raised the bar of sensual cutting, sculpting and refining clothes for women’s bodies to a level of Fine Art. Watch “Joe’s Film” by #joemckenna to hear @sophiehicks_ brilliantly articulate his magical gift. A true master with an unfailing dedication to his talent.

Words can not express the sadness of learning of the passing of the great Azzedine Alaïa, a true visionary. @alexanderfury had the honor of interviewing Mr Alaïa for Document FW17, and his warmth, vision, and passion radiate. From the interview, “I didn’t think about being a designer, a couturier. I was happy to meet these interesting people, elegant women.” Our gratitude to #JoeMcKenna as well, for making this dream conversation a reality. Portrait by @studiojohansandberg.
