Fashion lost one is its greatest legends, iconic designer Karl Lagerfeld.

Karl Lagerfeld has passed away at the age of 85.

Karl has held titles at Chanel, Fendi, his namesake brand, “Karl Lagerfeld” and Chloe and collaborated with H&M back in 2012 on a collection that sold out within hours.

Holding the title as creative director over the House of Chanel since 1983, Karl introduced a new and younger audience to Chanel. He partnered with Pharell Williams on a collection and has taken Rihanna under his wing, dressing her on multiple occasions. Karl also photographed Kim Kardashian for her first fashion photo CR Fashion Book in 2013 while she was seven months pregnant with daughter North West.

He has dressed celebrities such as Beyoncé, he gave Naomi Campbell her start in the modeling industry and he is the reason Chanel is the iconic brand it is today.

Known to be the most prolific designer of the 21st century and loved for his witty and sarcastic personality, celebrities took to social media to honor the iconic designer.

Naomi Campbell posted a photo with the caption reading, “too many memories to write... I THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU !!! For taking the chance on a 16-year-old girl from South London and opening my eyes. May you Rest with Highest 💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔🙏🏾.”
