Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Otto Lagerfeld was a German creative director, fashion designer, artist and caricaturist who lived in Paris. He was known as the creative director of the French fashion house Chanel, a position held from 1983 until his death, was creative director of the Italian fur and leather goods fashion house Fendi, of his own eponymous fashion label, he collaborated on a variety of fashion and art-related projects. Lagerfeld was recognized for his signature white hair, black sunglasses, fingerless gloves, high, detachable collars. Lagerfeld was born on 10 September 1933 to Elisabeth and businessman Otto Lagerfeld, his father owned a company and imported evaporated milk. His family belonged to the Old Catholic Church; when Lagerfeld's mother met his father, she was a lingerie saleswoman from Berlin. His parents married in 1930. Lagerfeld was known to misrepresent his birth year, claiming to be younger than his actual age, to misrepresent his parents' background. For example, he claimed that he was born in 1938 to "Elisabeth of Germany" and Otto Ludwig Lagerfeldt from Sweden.

These claims have been conclusively proven to be false, as his father was from Hamburg and spent his entire life in Germany, with no Swedish connection. There is no evidence that his mother Elisabeth Bahlmann, the daughter of a middle-class local politician, called herself "Elisabeth of Germany", he was known to insist. In an interview on French television in February 2009, Lagerfeld said that he was "born neither in 1933 nor 1938". In April 2013, he declared that he was born in 1935. A birth announcement was, published by his parents in 1933, the baptismal register in Hamburg lists him as born in that year, showing that he was born on 10 September 1933. Bild am Sonntag published his baptismal records in 2008 and interviewed his teacher and a classmate, who both confirmed that he was born in 1933; the same was confirmed by his death record. Despite that, Karl Lagerfeld announced publicly that he was celebrating his "70th birthday" on 10 September 2008, despite turning 75, his older sister, Martha Christiane "Christel", was born in 1931.

Lagerfeld had an older half-sister, from his father's first marriage. His family name has been spelled both Lagerfeld. Like his father, he used the spelling Lagerfeld, considering it to "sound more commercial", his family was shielded from the deprivations of World War II due to his father's business interests in Germany through the firm Glücksklee-Milch GmbH. His father had been in San Francisco during the 1906 earthquake; as a child, he showed great interest in visual arts, former schoolmates recalled that he was always making sketches "no matter what we were doing in class". Lagerfeld told interviewers that he learned much more by visiting the Kunsthalle Hamburg museum than he did in school, his greatest inspiration came from French artists, he claimed to have only continued school in order to learn the French language so that he could move there. Lagerfeld finished his secondary school at the Lycée Montaigne in Paris, where he majored in drawing and history. In 1955, after living in Paris for two years, Lagerfeld entered a coat design competition sponsored by the International Wool Secretariat.

He won the coat category and befriended Yves Saint Laurent, who won the dress category, was soon after hired by Pierre Balmain. He worked as Balmain's assistant, apprentice, for three years. In 1958, Lagerfeld became the artistic director for Jean Patou. In 1964, he went to Rome to study art history and work for Tiziano but was soon designing freelance for a multitude of brands, including Charles Jourdan, Chloé, Valentino. In 1967, he was hired by Fendi to modernize their fur line. Lagerfeld's innovative designs proved groundbreaking, as he introduced the use of mole and squirrel pelts into high fashion. Lagerfeld remained with Fendi until his death. In the 1980s, Lagerfeld was hired by Chanel, considered a "near-dead brand" at the time since the death of designer Coco Chanel a decade prior. Lagerfeld brought life back into the company, making it a huge success by revamping its ready-to-wear fashion line. Lagerfeld integrated the interlocked "CC" monograph of Coco Chanel into a style pattern for the House of Chanel.

In 1984, a year after his start at Chanel, Lagerfeld began his own eponymous "Karl Lagerfeld" brand. The brand was established to channel "intellectual sexiness". In 1993, US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour walked out of his Milan Fashion Week runway show, when he employed strippers and adult-film star Moana Pozzi to model his black-and-white collection for Fendi. In 2002, Lagerfeld asked Renzo Rosso, the founder of Diesel, to collaborate with him on a special denim collection for the Lagerfeld Gallery; the collection, Lagerfeld Gallery by Diesel, was co-designed by Lagerfeld and developed by Diesel's creative team, under the supervision of Rosso. It consisted of five pieces that were presented during the designer's catwalk shows during Paris Fashion Week and sold in limited editions at the Lagerfeld Galleries in Paris and Monaco and at the Diesel Denim Galleries in New York and Tokyo. During the first week of sales in New York, more than 90% of the trousers were sold out though prices ranged from $240 to $1,840.

In a statement after the show in Paris, Rosso said: "I am honored to have met this fashion icon of our time. Karl represents creativity and challenge, the fact that he thought of Diesel for this c
