AZ Factory, the fashion company founded by the late Alber Elbaz has revealed details of a tribute show for the designer.


The show titled “Love Brings Love” will take place during the upcoming Paris Fashion Week and will bring together over 40 fashion houses to create a special collaborative offering.


The 40 international fashion houses will join the AZ Factory design studio in creating looks in homage to the late couturier with the resulting collection being presented on October 5th, as the closing event of Paris Fashion Week.


We are so moved and humbled that today’s best creative minds are joining the AZ Factory team in paying tribute to Alber’s memory. The show will be a powerful expression of love and a beautiful celebration for our dear Alber. We know that he would have been incredibly honored to be remembered in this way. – Laurent Malecaze, AZ Factory CEO


The show’s concept was inspired by Théatre de la Mode, a 1945 Parisian exhibition that united French couturiers as a beautiful expression of creativity, prestige, and solidarity in the wake of World War II. Fascinated by the uplifting story, Alber had always dreamt of uniting his fashion family for a new, modern iteration of Théatre de la Mode for today. More information on the list of participating designers and fashion houses will be shared in the lead up to the show.
