RIP King Of Kling Azzedine Alaïa

Now setting the heavens on fire with his designs, Lady Gaga once said that no man knew a woman's body as well as Azzedine Alaïa.

Having studied sculpture as a young man in Tunisia, when Azzedine came to Paris in 1957 he sculpted the most amazing couture fashion.

Rihanna looks absolutely stunning in this fire engine red gown at the 2013 Grammys.

She could stop traffic.

Azzedine described his design as “While I enjoyed and still do enjoy doing ready-to-wear, my roots are in couture – all my clothes are first made by myself, all patterns are traced by me and then developed by my couture ateliers,” he said, explaining that 30 people are dedicated to the hand craft.

How a designer created fashion magic.

Azzedine Alaïa 26 February 1940 - 18 November 2017.
