International Fashion Designers Will Come Together In Memory of the Late Alber Elbaz

Lindsay Judge   |   27-09-2021


As part of the upcoming Paris Fashion Week, 44 international fashion houses and designers will take part in the Love Brings Love fashion show in honour of the late designer Alber Elbaz.


Organised by AZ Factory, Elbaz’s fashion brand, the designers will each provide a look for the occasion, inspired by Alber’s legacy or a special take on an iconic silhouette.

The full list of participating designers has now been released and includes a huge selection of the industry’s top talents as well as icons and legends. Participants include Giorgio Armani, Donatella Versace, Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood, Raf Simons, Ralph Lauren, Jean Paul Gaultier, Marie Grazia Chiuri and many more.


The show’s concept is inspired by Théâtre de la Mode, a 1945 Parisian exhibition that brought together over sixty French couturiers as a beautiful expression of creativity, prestige, and solidarity in the wake of World War II. Fascinated by this uplifting story, Alber had long dreamt of uniting his wider fashion family for a new, modern iteration of its own. This year, with the help of all those who loved him, AZ Factory will bring Alber’s biggest dream to life.


The event will be live-streamed on October 5th at 8pm CET time (10pm UAE time) on, on Youtube and on Instagram.
