It has only been a day since the tragic news of fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld‘s passing broke. His death brought the whole fashion industry to a halt, as he was reported dead mid-day on February 20, 2019, and the shocking news left a big hole in the community.

Since his passing yesterday, many celebrities, models and industry insiders have shared their experiences with the Chanel and Fendi designer, highlighting his importance in their lives. Naomi Campbell shared a touching paragraph detailing her first encounter with Lagerfeld, thanking him for taking a chance on “the 16 year old girl from South London” and “opening” her eyes. Off-White™ founder and Louis Vuitton‘s menswear director Virgil Abloh thanked the designer with an image of Lagerfeld posing with rapper Nigo alongside the caption, “this image alone was enough to make my generation dream…”

Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour also shared her sorrow following his passing, saying:

“Today the world lost a giant among men. Karl was so much more than our greatest and most prolific designer—his creative genius was breathtaking and to be his friend was an exceptional gift. Karl was brilliant, he was wicked, he was funny, he was generous beyond measure, and he was deeply kind. I will miss him so very much.”

There’s no doubt that Karl Lagerfeld has paved the way for contemporary fashion today, and it goes without saying that the iconic designer has influenced so many creatives across all industries through his inspiring vision and class. Take a look at a handful of celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne, Kim Kardashian and more paying their respects to Lagerfeld on Instagram below, and read more about the designer and his remarkable influence here.

Every time I try and write about this man, all i do is cry. He changed my life, he believed in me when so many others didn’t including myself. He also introduced me to some of the most important and special people in my life. He is a visionary, a genius but more than that…. a dear friend. Outside of fashion, he was one of the most interesting and caring men I have ever met. I am so lucky and grateful to have had him in my life, worked with him and been able to spend time with him…. Although now, I wish it had been more. His legacy will live on forever. I miss you more than I could ever try and describe. I wish I had been able to tell you how much you meant to me. I love you @karllagerfeld all I can say is thank for the bottom of my heart ???

Cher Karl, que dire pour exprimer à quel point vous allez nous manquer. The world will never know another force like you. My heart is so heavy today, but so full of gratitude for all that you have taught and done for me. Your kindness, humour, and loyalty will live on in the hearts of those who knew you and your genius will live on forever. I feel so lucky to have been able to work with you so closely, but even luckier to have known your heart and incredible spirit. I will hold every moment spent with you so dear. Words can’t express how much your belief in me has impacted every aspect of my life; it is a gift I could never thank you enough for. You truly made my dreams come true. Thinking of my Chanel family today and all those who knew and loved Karl ❤️ Karl, on vous aime. Merci, merci, merci. Vous êtes éternel.
