In the beginning Christian Lacroix wanted to be a set designer

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I visited Christian Lacroix last week to talk to him about Mr. Pearl. how they met and what it was like for him to work with Mr. Pearl. I was delighted that with all that is going on in Mr. Lacroix’s life at the moment that he took the time to make this interview. Although his schedule was intensely busy, when Christian Lacroix is in front of you, he gives of himself 100%.
Currently four firms are bidding for Lacroix, Cross fingers that the right white knight comes along to rescue his couture house. I cannot imagine Paris Couture without Christian Lacroix.
