After 54 years as creative director, Karl Lagerfeld’s final collection for Fendi hit the runway today at Milan Fashion Week, just two days after his death. An emotional occasion, the Italian fashion house paid tribute to its late creative director in a series of touching ways throughout the show.
Upon arrival, every seat was topped with a moving tribute card commemorating the designer’s death and show notes came with sketches of Lagerfeld’s final collection
Closing out the Fendi runway for the first time was Gigi Hadid, who frequently worked with Lagerfeld over the last few years. The model, who appeared to be in tears, wore a sheer, bright yellow dress down the runway.
