Tunisian-born fashion designer Azzedine Alaïa has died, aged 77.
The French national became famous for his celebration of the female through his sculptural, figure-hugging creations that have been worn by Lady Gaga, Michelle Obama, Naomi Campbell and many other fashion icons.
Throughout his career, Alaïa was commended for staunchly eschewing the fashion system and very rarely adhering to the official Fashion Week show calendar.
Over the weekend, celebrities turned to social media to mourn the loss of the beloved fashion designer.
