Top 5 fashion icons we miss: 2011
The fashion world lost some of its most talented and individual style icons this year, but they will be inspiring generations of fashion-lovers in years to come.
2-Couture legend François Lesage will be forever remembered for leading Embroidery Atelier for over 50 years. He preserved the true art of couture – the magic of hand embellishment and unique craftsmanship – and has made creations for YSL, John Paul Gaultier and obviously Chanel (which acquired the company in 2002) as well as many more. BTW: Great obituary from The New York Times.
4-One of the saddest stories this year in the fashion world was the scandal surrounding John Galliano. The Dior SS12 collection was nice, but not ground-breaking and Kate Moss wore a Galliano wedding dress, but we miss the designer and hope he gets better to reclaim his fashion crown.
