I was so hoping this was fake news….RIP Azzedine Alaia, the master has left us….so sad…no words

Dear Shaded Viewers,

In the world of fake news I was so hoping that is what this was but…it is real.

Years ago I showed the film by Ellen Von Unwerth on Azzedine and it remains one of my favourite fashion docs of a time that was and will never be again.
