ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogFrench-Tunisian fashion designer Azzedine Alaia will be honoured by London's Design Museum with a major exhibition next year following his death on November 18 at the age of 77. "Azzedine Alaia: The Couturier" will run from May 10 to October 7, showcasing more than 60 pieces personally selected by the iconic designer. "Azzedine Alaia was recognised throughout his life as a master couturier who expressed the timeless beauty of the female form in the most refined degree of haute couture," the museum said. "The Design Museum will now present this unique exhibition planned by Alaia himself, exploring his passion and energy for fashion as he himself intended it to be seen." Alaia was born to a farming family in Tunisia in 1940 and studied sculpture at the fine arts school in Tunis before working at a modest neighbourhood dressmaker's shop. He rose to fame in the 1980s, refusing to march to the beat of international fashion weeks and instead releasing his collections in his own time, with scant concern for publicity. He became known as the King of Cling for his form-fitting gowns. "I like women," he told AFP in a 2013 interview. "I never think about doing new things, about being creative, but about making clothing that will make women beautiful."
PARIS: French-Tunisian designer Azzedine Alaia, whose timeless gowns won an army of devotees around the world, has died at the age of 77, France´s fashion federation said Saturday. Alaia, who rose to fame in the 1980s, refused to march to the beat of international fashion weeks, releasing his collections in his own time with scant concern for publicity. "We have lost a designer of great talent. It is very sad news," fellow creator Pierre Cardin told AFP. Alaia was born to a farming family in Tunisia in 1940 and studied sculpture at the capital´s fine arts school before working at a modest neighbourhood dressmaker´s shop. He moved to Paris in the late 1950s, working briefly for Dior and Guy Laroche before eventually going solo, winning a reputation for sexy designs celebrating the female form. Alaia himself was discreet and invariably clad in a black high-necked Chinese suit. His catwalk shows were low-key as well, earning a loyal clientele of fashionistas who wanted luxury without showing off. Former US first lady Michelle Obama was among his haute couture fans but Alaia also produced ready-to-wear collections, while ignoring pressure to systematically refresh his ideas every season. He signed a development deal with Prada in 2000, but quit seven years later to work with Swiss luxury group Richemont. Global success did not change Alaia´s working habits and he continued throughout his career to work deep into the night, often to the soundtrack of old movies.
