I want to talk about Christian Lacroix. I love the art of Haute Couture, but when I watched a show about the makings of his collection back in the nineties, I had even more respect for this art. Watching his staff weave a jacket from yarn to fabric to finish was amazing, and watching them sit in the front row of his couture show melted my heart.
Lacroix is a true couturier, who did it with passion and love. With this said, the last show was indeed a sad but memorable show. He found bolts of leftover fabric, the venue was donated to him for that day, his staff worked for free. This is true loyalty.
