French fashion students are in for a real treat when the Chanel designer teaches a one-off masterclass in Paris
Karl Lagerfeld is about to give back to his dedicated fashion following by imparting his valued wisdom on students at the prestigious Paris Institute of Political Studies next month.
The 80-year-old Chanel icon will treat undergraduates at the renowned Sciences Po university to a two-hour Q&A session, which will cover the German designer's 'view on the world, arts, creation and his life as a designer.'
The masterclass will see Karl under the spotlight as co-host Françoise-Marie Santucci, editor in chief at Libération’s Next magazine, fires questions at one of the most noted creatives in the fashion industry.
Taking place on November 19, the talk will be held in the school’s Grand Amphitheater, which can hold 600 people.
Around 500 seats will be reserved for students, mostly of the communications school, while the remaining ones will be 'by invitation-only'. We can almost hear those elbows being sharpened now...
Hopefully, Karl will receive a warmer welcome than Ralph Lauren did when he flew into fellow French fashion school L'École des Beaux-Arts earlier this month.
The American designer, who is funding their $1.5 million refurbishment project, closed part of the university to stage a fashion show attended by stars such as Catherine Deneuve and Princess Charlene of Monaco. But he was soon subjected to the fury of L'École des Beaux-Arts students after being accused of transforming their school into a "venue for socialites..."
Let's hope feisty Karl doesn't give those French fashion-lovers anything to complain about!
