Azzedine Alaïa showed his collection in Paris on Tuesday night – in his studio as he usually does …
… according to his own schedule, not during fashion week, away from all the top models and drama of the front row. He’s been excusing himself from the obligations of the fashion world for years, and even so, he’s been able to maintain all his influence and importance. His company only keeps growing, and all the while, he remains fiercely independent.
He created a real atmosphere in his studio – a warmth – something special. One of my dreams is to be invited to one of his private dinners where he cooks for his friends… it sounds like the ambiance is amazing.
I just wanted to say it makes me dream, and even if I’ll never have his genius, I hope to be able to follow the same kind of path – creating something great, but intimate, special, and different. And cook for my friends!!!
