Azzedine Alaia

One of my favourite designers of all times is Alaia. His designs encompass such craftmanship through each piece. He also portrays the female form through his illustrations and garments as that of a strong silhouette and tough attitude. In the past he has often had the model Naomi Campbell modelling for him and also another very strong-willed character Tina Turner as she exudes raw strength. His garments are such items of craftmanship yet they show a tough edge to them they are timeless pieces, yet the collections he produced from 1981-1993 seem ahead of its time. Below shows perfect examples of how skillful a designer Alaia is, the designs range from as mentioned 1981-1993. O often tough designs can be seen yet theatrical through the clothes some of these archive styles wouldn’t be out-of-place today on a current singer.
