Gone but Never Forgotten – Rest in Peace Karl Lagerfeld

Gone but Never Forgotten – Rest in Peace Karl Lagerfeld

Yesterday morning the fashion world woke up to the very sad news that legendary designer and Creative Director of Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, has passed away in Paris at the grand age of 85. Lagerfeld, one of the most prolific and widely popular designers of the 20th and 21st centuries, stood at the helm of the iconic French house of Chanel for an era-defining and age-defying 36 years.

During his Chanel reign, of the things this household name was most well-known for was his extravagantly breath-taking couture runway shows. From recreating the iconic Eiffel Tower to ‘launching’ a life-size rocket ship, to creating his very own Chanel supermarket, Karl Lagerfeld was renowned for his spectacular show space transformations. Although the backdrop for Lagerfeld’s wondrous shows would change from season to season, the highlight of each show was, and will always be, the Chanel bride. So, to honour this creative genius, we take a look back at some of the most memorable Chanel brides to step out onto the catwalk wearing Karl Lagerfeld’s exquisite couture.

We think it’s safe to say that Lagerfeld’s bridal designs were certainly not for the everyday bride! However, his couture creations can definitely help spark inspiration for your dream dress. From billowing chiffon, detailed sleeves and alternative headpieces, Lagerfeld offers a vast archive of bold bridal styles. Now let’s take a look at some famous faces who chose to wear Chanel for their big day…
