Israeli fashion designer Alber Elbaz recently passed away due to COVID-19 at the age of 59. Elbaz was the creative director of Lanvin and founder of the Richemont-backed label AZ Factory. He was responsible for several significant contributions to the fashion industry, including works with Geoffrey Beene, Guy Laroche, and Yves Saint Laurent as Creative Director of Rive Gauche from 1998 to 2000.

On October 5th, 44 fashion houses and designers came together from across the globe to pay tribute to Elbaz, closing out Paris Fashion Week with a runway collection inspired by the designer’s creative legacy. The collection was titled “Love Brings Love,” which was Elbaz’s mantra and celebrated his “dynamic approach to innovation and design, as well as his unshakable attention to the real needs of women globally” (AZ Factory).

“Alber Elbaz was known and will be remembered for his love of women and of his craft, his vision, his kindness, his spirited approach to work and life” – AZ Factory
