Karl Lagerfeld Biography

Karl Otto Lagerfeld (* September 10, 1933, in Hamburg; † February 19, 2019, in Neuilly-sur-Seine) significantly shaped the style of the international fashion world. Unmistakable are the designer's trademarks — the white powdered pigtail, a towering patricide, dark sunglasses and, until the early 2000s, a hand fan, which he said he used as protection against paparazzi and to ward off cigarette smoke. The eccentric designer, fashion designer, photographer and costume designer is largely responsible for the revival of the French fashion house Chanel, whose rise he accompanied as chief designer since 1983.
