His unprecedented fashion career has led him to become one of fashion’s most iconic figures and now, his life will be celebrated in a way that is as large as Karl Lagerfeld‘s life itself.
The former Creative Director of Chanel and Fendi, as well as Founder and Creative Director of his namesake label, Karl Lagerfeld, will see his life celebrated in Paris this month.
Shortly after four months of his passing (the designer sadly passed away on February 19), the memorial will be held on June 20 and will see a pretty impressive tribute to the designer.
According to WWD, it’s the Grand Palais in Paris that will be covered in wallpaper with 56 towering portraits of Lagerfeld.
Plus, the 90-minute celebration will see the Grand Palais decked out with three giant LED screens, vast custom carpets, two Steinway pianos, two large bars and a main stage that will welcome a rotating cast of top film and music stars, including Pharrell Williams, dancer Lil Buck, violinist Charlie Siem, and actresses Tilda Swinton, Helen Mirren, Fanny Ardant and Cara Delevingne.
We’re certain we’ll also be seeing a slew of designers too, including Ralph Lauren and Valentino Garavani.
