Karl in New York
The Chanel show is less than a month away, but amidst preparation, Karl Lagerfeld flew in to New York, and made his presence felt by appearing in not just one, but two occassions.
On 9th September, the night before Fashion’s Night Out, Karl graced the re-opening of Chanel’s Soho store. The guests include Sarah Jessica Parker, Blake Lively, Claire Danes, Diane Kruger and many of his usual favourites. Alexa Chung DJ-ed. Definitely the biggest party so far in Spring 2011 fashion week.
The next day, on the second day of Fashion week, several key fashion figures including Anna Wintour kept themselves away from the shows to attend the Couture Council luncheon at Avery Fisher Hall. The Kaiser was honored with the Fashion Visionary Award, presented to him by long time friend and muse Diane Kruger, dressed in Chanel couture of course.
