Interview With Alber Elbaz On Observer
Never judge a book by its cover. It's a saying we have all heard and as humans, we still tend to judge a person on the way he/she looks before we discover what he is capable of. Alber Elbaz proves us all wrong when he took over the reins of the house of Lanvin. Not only is his talent magnitude in size, but his humble attitude towards his success is an inspiration. I now find him really adorable. We seldom see him in the spotlight, but those shots on observer is cute.
Here's to more brilliant collections from Alber. Woman love him for his amazing dresses. And men thank him for making woman fabulous when they wear Lanvin. Of course, he is also the one who hired Lucas Ossendrijver to propel Lanvin menswear into fashion stardom.
All these plus sales soaring with him heading Lanvin...who would have thought all these accomplishments stems from an overweight, uncompromising, plagued by self-doubt, unlikely fashion icon - Alber Elbaz:-) Read the interview here.
