As the creative director for the prestigious fashion house Lanvin, Alber Elbez has revolutionized a generation of French sophistication. Elbez is singlehandedly responsible for elevating the french brand into significant prestige, and has inspired a new way of dressing. Insiders claim that a ticket to a Lanvin runway show is one of the most prized possessions of Paris Fashion Week, which is no surprise considering the amount of fashion enthusiasts that support the brand and its elegant and sophisticated aesthetic. Over the span of 10 years, Elbaz has also influenced an increase in recognition for the brand, leading to a rise in sales (last year reaching 24 percent), through expansion, and new creative projects including a partnership with retailer H+M. To say that Elbaz has left a mark on the industry is an understatement, as he has relaunched a Parisian "couture-like" mentality, that has even fashion's most recognizable veterans taking note. As his collections and trendsetting styles continue to evolve and expand, we should all expect incredible things from this brilliant visionary. So here is to you Mr. Elbez, and to another decade of making exquisite clothing.
