All the way from every runway, fashion weeks around the world, all the new trends and every fashion event we couldn’t get over. So since 2017 is about to come to an end, here are some of the fashion moments we probably won’t forget.
1. Chanel’s Fall Couture Fashion Show in Paris
Inspired by the iconic Parisian fashion vibe, Karl Lagerfeld debuted his Fall’17 collection under a great recreation of the Eiffel Tower in the Grand Palais, and the show was a dream. Karl was honoured the highest honor of Paris, a Grand Vermeil medal, as an honor of being one of the biggest names in the fashion world, and an appreciation for his work in France.
2. The “Rei Kawakubo/ Comme des Garcons” themed Met Gala
This year’s biggest fashion event was a great deal, concerning the unusual themes, and the honoured list of guests by Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, who gathered for the biggest fashion event in an honor to pay homage to the designer Rei Kawakubo. And let’s just remember Queen Rihanna who was actually the only one who stuck by the theme and nailed it!
3. Elie Saab’s dreamiest collection was somehow inspired by Egypt
Lebanese designer Elie Saab blessed Paris and the fashion world with a dreamy Couture collection with Umm Kalthoum in the background while models hit the runway. In a recognition of the Egyptian golden era in the 20th century, Saab’s embroidered a dress with the palm trees of Damietta city and boats sailing along the Nile River.
4. Donatella Versace paid tribute to Gianni Versace
Donatella paid tribute to her late brother, whose tragic death happened 20 years ago. She showcased a collection inspired by his vision back in his days, and the curtains were pushed back to reveal 90s Supermodels Carla Bruni, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Helena Christensen waiting in gold gowns. What an epic moment that will always be remembered
5. Azzedine Alaia’s sudden death
The iconic designer’s sudden death was a heartbreaking moment for everyone in the fashion world. At the age of 82, the world said goodbye to such an honourable and iconic man, who gave a lot to the fashion world and inspired millions of designers to be what they are now. Forever an icon, and forever remembered!
6. Supermodel Naomi Campbell presented tribute to Azzedine Alaia at the British Fashion Awards
“Everyone in this room knows that Azzedine was able to transform a woman’s body into something special; make you look great and still like a woman. He captured the essence of femininity. But beyond his work as a designer, from the second day I met him, he became my papa. He was the most generous, kind, compassionate and humble man I have ever known, with a mischievous sense of humour in the glint of his eye, and he filled my life – and the lives of the women on this stage, and all of you in the room who met him – with light and joy. I moved into his home at 16 and he opened my eyes to the world: to artists, art and design, architecture, French and Tunisian culture. How blessed was I to have papa show me these different worlds?
7. Alessandra Ambrosio hung her wings
The VS fashion show is always a big deal, but pretty different this year when the supermodel and VS Angel Alessandra hit the VS runway for one last time before saying goodbye to the brand, for which she had been working for not less than two decades, and had walked the show 17 times. What a moment for everyone to watch the iconic model hit the world’s most famous runway for her last time?
8. Woman in the fashion industry broke their silence, with the help of Cameron Russell
Model and activist Cameron Russell decided to shine a light on all the abuse that takes place between the models in the fashion industry. She encouraged women to break their silence and started sharing anonymous stories of sexual harassment and assault experienced by models and others using the hashtag #MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse. Models like Doutzen and Sara Sampaio also broke their silence and spoke out about some of their personal stories with such issue. And what a year has it been with many women breaking the silence!
These were some of the iconic fashion moments of 2017 that will always be remembered, what was your favorite?
