Will the real Christian Lacroix please stand up...
“Lacroix sweetie! You know, people will think ‘wow a Lacroix!’” As Ab Fab PR exec Edina “Eddy” Monsoon rightly points out to her daughter on-screen: to love fashion is to love Christian Lacroix. The iconic fashion house, founded in 1987 by the eponymous designer, brought an expressive, playful and larger-than-life energy to haute couture that was unique at the time.
While it’s been 10 years since Christian Lacroix walked away from the label that bears his name, the King of 80s excess continues to inspire creatives today. So you can imagine our delight of discovering the Parisian designer the latest to join the world of Instagram. While we love an artfully curated IG feed packed full of archival material, @fkachristianlacroix is a more personalised account. Sharing design inspiration, detail close-ups, poster girls/boys and the occasional selfie.
