I was watching television and stumbled upon a 30 minute show that you might be interested in watching. Have you heard of Fashion: Backstage Pass on CNN with Alina Cho? I really like it. CNN hasn't done a show like this since STYLE with Elsa Klensch.
Cho was in Paris covering Haute Couture Fashion and interviewed designers Donatella Versace, Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld and Lenny Kravitz.
I found the Karl Lagerfeld and Lenny Kravitz interview to be very interesting and decided to share those with you today.
This special will re-air on CNN International the week of July 27th. So look for it!
In the Karl Lagerfeld interview, he mentioned Haute Couture is made by hand and can take hundreds of hours to make, CHANEL Haute Couture can cost anywhere from 30K - 250K per item, buyers of Haute Couture are getting younger (the starting age is now between 30-35 years of age), and buyers of Haute Couture are more International (China, Japan, Middle East, Russia, India and Brazil) To view that video click HERE.
In the Lenny Kravitz interview, I found out he is an interior designer, has a home in Paris (he also has homes in Miami, Brazil and the Bahamas) that he's lived in for 7 years, designed the couch and chandelier that's in his home, founded Kravitz Design (CLICK ON THE WEBSITE, it is EXQUISITE) in 2003 (a residential, commercial and product design company) with offices and staff in New York City, has designed condos and hotel suites in Miami and his goal is to make a lifestyle brand. Oh yeah! He also doesn't allow anyone to wear shoes in his home. So make sure you've had your pedicure if you get an invite there ;)
I hurriedly took the video below with my iPhone so excuse the quality, but at least it gives you a glimpse at his Paris home. Start it at :50. Have a Great Monday!
