Azzedine Alaïa Remembered

“I am still in total denial and shocked to the core about the news of losing this beautiful gifted friend. I have not been able to stop myself crying with pure distress at the reality of the loss of Azzedine from our world. I am now left with so many wonderful moments shared – his generosity of spirit, his mischievous playfulness, his laughter, his endless kindness and love, just so painful to understand that I will never be able to make any new memories with him but will forever cherish every moment shared. He was undoubtedly the king of fashiondom with his understanding and love for women which really remains unrivalled, he understood every curve and how to maximise and empower and celebrate us all with every piece. His talent will remain a testament and be celebrated in the history books for eternity. A fashion legend. But my memories will always be for his unconditional fierce love and generosity of spirit, his loyalty and his laughter and mischief. I will miss you always but you will, my darling Azzedine, be part of my life with every day, with every piece and your laughter will remain vivid. Thank goodness for the amazing documentary by Joe McKenna that captures him in earnest all the little private moments so very beautiful and cherished by us all. So goodbye for now my darling beautiful man thank you for all the magical moments that I will and everyone whose life you touched.”
