Fendi Haute Couture A/W 2015-2016 Collection – Haute Fourrure Collection designed by Karl Lagerfeld for Fendi,
As he celebrates 50 years at the Italian brand, Karl Lagerfeld will be in the spotlight througout this prestigious week, and specifically on July 8. Rather than an haute couture presentation, this will actually be a show of ‘haute fourrure,’ meaning fur, filled with creations that are sure to dazzle the crowds.
It was the first Fendi’s Haute Couture Show.
French film icon and ardent animal rights activist Brigitte Bardot has already registered her disapproval by writing a letter to Choupette Lagerfeld, the designer’s pampered feline companion.
