The headliner of Paris Fashion Week has traditionally been Louis Vuitton, but this time the honorary status of the brand had to give way to a special display in memory of designer Albert Elbaz, who died in April this year. And this event is truly unique, so we suggest evaluating the new collection of Nicolas Ghesquière a little later, but for now let's look at the guests of the Love Brings Love show. Natalia Vodianova and Antoine Arnault, the first lady of France Brigitte Macron, Naomi Campbell, Tina Kunaki, Demi Moore with her daughter Scout, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Elena Perminova, Bella Porch and many others came to honor the memory of the fashion designer.

Alber Elbaz was one of the most talented and influential designers of the late 1990s and 2000s. The native of Casablanca began his career in New York in a bridal fashion studio. Then Elbaz was creative director at Guy Laroche and Yves Saint Laurent, but the real high point for him was the appointment at Lanvin in 2001. The designer has managed to relaunch the brand, creating a refreshed aesthetic that has been admired by fashion critics and celebrities alike.

Creative success has led to a financial recovery. Lanvin's revenue increased 60% from 2005 to 2007. In 2015, Elbaz was fired due to disagreements with the main shareholder of the brand, after which the designer went into the shadows for several years.
