Here’s How The Fashion Industry Is Reacting To Karl Lagerfeld’s Passing

Prashansa Daniell

On the 19th of February, 2019 the world witnessed the loss of a great designer and visionary, Karl Lagerfeld. He was the creative director and major fashion houses Chanel and Fendi and also of his own label, Karl Lagerfeld.

He came from a humble background but grew to make a name for himself that can be compared to very few. His design aesthetic was as unique as his personality—which was classy, poised and a little bit savage.

He dedicated his entire life to work and the fashion industry will surely reap those benefits for years on end. The industry will never be the same without him, and these posts from prominent names in the fashion industry will prove that to you.

Every time I try and write about this man, all i do is cry. He changed my life, he believed in me when so many others didn’t including myself. He also introduced me to some of the most important and special people in my life. He is a visionary, a genius but more than that…. a dear friend. Outside of fashion, he was one of the most interesting and caring men I have ever met. I am so lucky and grateful to have had him in my life, worked with him and been able to spend time with him…. Although now, I wish it had been more. His legacy will live on forever. I miss you more than I could ever try and describe. I wish I had been able to tell you how much you meant to me. I love you @karllagerfeld all I can say is thank for the bottom of my heart 💔💔💔

Karl, thank you for the decades of brilliance, inspiration, and beauty that you brought to this world. 🖤

Karl loved this picture I took on a disposable camera at the Hedi Slimane Dior Homme show in Paris very early in the new millennium. Karl asked for a copy and propped it up by the window in his studio. It curled up and turned yellow – but maybe it’s still there as a reminder of how Karl viewed himself: enigmatic to the end.

So incredibly sad to hear this. Karl was a genius and always so kind and generous to me both personally and professionally. RIP 💔x vb

RIP, Karl Lagerfeld.

You will always be remembered.
