alber e;baz

The fashion world is still saddened by the loss of great designer, Alber Elbaz who died this past April from coronavirus. Elbaz is praised for reviving the dated French fashion house Lanvin, bringing it to the modern world and making it a must-have name once again. On October 5, AZ Factory, the fashion start-up founded by the late designer and Richemont, will put on a tribute show to close out Paris Fashion Week.

“We are so moved and humbled that today’s best creative minds are joining the AZ Factory team in paying tribute to Alber’s memory,” says Laurent Malecaze, AZ Factory CEO, in a statement shared with GRAZIA. “The show will be a powerful expression of love and a beautiful celebration for our dear Alber. We know that he would have been incredibly honored to be remembered in this way.”
