In a matter of hours, Fendi and Karl Lagerfeld will make history with their “Haute Fourrure” couture fashion show in Paris. The show will present around 30 looks, all encompassing fur, to celebrate Fendi’s roots – it started life as a fur and leather house – and Karl Lagerfeld’s 50 year collaboration with the fashion label.
There has been a great deal of media attention around the event, since it was announced earlier this year, and the internet has already been flooded with articles debating the matter. Fur is, of course, a topic that divides both fashion people and the general public. But whatever their opinion, the world’s media will be watching the Fendi catwalk this evening.
