Love Brings Love
Design of publication, Love Brings Love – A Homage to Alber Elbaz, for publishing house Rizzoli.
Following the great success of the original Love Brings Love – A Homage to Alber Elbaz publication, commissioned by AZ Factory, Rizzoli published a second edition, which includes documentation of the fashion show at which the first edition was gifted to attendees.
Love Brings Love, the celebration of Elbaz’s life and work that concluded Paris Fashion Week, remains a unique event in the recent history of the industry. In tribute, forty-four designers created dresses for a memorial fashion show — the first collaborative show to have ever been held in Paris. Of the more than seventy looks, thirty were by Elbaz, posthumously executed by his team at AZ Factory.
The book is divided into three parts, which include texts written by Elbaz prior to his passing; a sequence of sketches by forty-four designers and maisons, including Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Comme des Garçon, Gucci, Jean Paul Gaultier, Rick Owens, and Valentino; and a section of photographs from the show itself.
