Karl Lagerfeld

Two people defined luxury costume jewellery in fashion history, Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld. Today, Chanel is brand Chanel. It is more like Lagerfeld –Chanel.

Lagerfeld has been a busy busy man. He has designed for Chole, Fendi and many other prestigious brands; become artistic director of the House of Chanel since 1983; established his own label Lagerfeld/KL; created his own ad campaigns which he also photographed; designed costumes for theatrical productions and many films; opened a book store, then a publishing house. At the age of 68, Lagerfeld lost 42kg, in 13 months. This alone, is amazing. If Lagerfeld hasn’t done it, can you believe it’s even possible?

So there it is. Follow one’s own instincts and just do it. Armed with strong determination and some hard work, what other people think not possible will be all achievable.

Happy Easter!
