access_time 00:02:33

Christian lacroix founded his house in 1987. passionate about theatre and art, but also of the south of france and notably his native town of arles, the couturier leaves a mark on the 1990s for the beauty, richness and shimmering colours of his creations. every show was an important occasion to which the press would flock, and all of his haute couture collections would always finish in a grand finale of a glowing bride walking under a shower of carnations. these lucky flowers, that were always present, would be distributed onto every chair. these shows were the only that ended almost systematically with a standing ovation, forcing christian lacroix to come out and greet the guests several times. interview: christian lacroix:carnations, because they have been there since the first show, and because carnations represent the south, the arles market, they’re something that is a part of every party. it’s maybe a little pretentious to put the carnations on the chairs, but i didn’t put them there so that people could throw them, but so people could keep them and take them home. marie-christiane marek:but we’ve thrown them from the beginning, since the very first lacroix collectionyou know that this is the first time i have seen a couturier make a bride cry, but from happiness!did you see that alek was in tears coming back, she was totally moved. bravo in any case. music paris modes archives
