Published

Yesterday the fashion world has lost one of the remarkable figures in the industry, Karl Lagerfeld, the iconic German Designer and creative director for Chanel and Fend.

Lagerfeld has worked tirelessly for LVMH’s Fendi and his own label, up until his death. And his designs are known to have added yet another charm to the label.

Karl Lagerfeld had been designing for Fendi since 1965 and had been at the creative helm of Chanel since 1983. All of this, while still maintaining to design collections for his own brand.

He changed his name as he believed Lagerfeld sounded “more commercial”.

Lagerfeld was known to encourage young and new designers, like Victoria Beckham – who has praised him for his kindness and generosity.

It’s true Lagerfeld has left our world, but his work and memory will forever be deeply embedded in the hearts of many, and that was apparent in the many profound tributes sent his way.

“Today the world lost a giant among men,” said the editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, Anna Wintour.

Industry heavyweights, celebrities and even political figures, have all issued heartfelt tributes.

Dina El Sherbiny has caused a storm of controversy in Saudi Arabia after showing up to the Joy Awards, that was held last night in Riyadh, wearing a revealing single-arm dress.

The young actress was accompanying her partner Amr Diab to the awards ceremony for support, and the couple certainly turned heads but it was El-Sherbiny’s look that angered many.

The actress appeared in a short black dress, single-armed and exposed, people of Saudi Arabia quickly took it to social media to criticize her poor choice of clothing and accused her of lack of decency.

It’s true that women in Saudi Arabia are obliged to wear abayas, and even though celebrities don’t really have to conform with this rule, many prefer to cover up as a sign of respect to their rules.

The attacks are continuing with some complaining that rules are only applied on Saudi women, others are accusing her of disrespecting their traditions and rules.

Others demanded from chairperson of the GEA Turki Al-Sheikh, to have the same rules applied on Dina and to prevent her from entering the Kingdom again…

We’ll see how this goes, and hope that citizens calm down soon.
