Chanel Couture 'Brides' and Wedding Dresses

In a tribute to Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel, we reminisce over his breathtaking bridal creations.


Today, the New Zealand Fashion industry woke to the sad news of the passing of legendary designer, Karl Lagerfeld.

The German designer, who was the creative director for Chanel and Fendi, was one of the industry's most iconic figures.

His signature ponytail, dark glasses, and black fingerless leather gloves made him an instantly recognisable figure worldwide.

Every Chanel Haute Couture Runway Show closed with a wedding gown worn by a supermodel – from Claudia Schiffer and Linda Evangelista in the '90s to contemporary models such as Kendall Jenner and Lily-Rose Depp in more recent times.

Let's take a look at some of his showstopping bridal creations over the years.

Rest in peace, Mr Lagerfeld. Your designs will live on.
