Thank You Karl

Dear KARL, you will be missed.
Who didn't want an invitation to your spectacular shows at Grand Palace
Though standing outside watching the fabulous parade seemed almost as good or better. No stress. Did you forget your passpost? What to wear? Where were you sitting inside? No renting a head-to-toe Chanel outfit. just watch the fun.
You gave us black and white like no one else
Ruffles, Hats, Sunglasses, the tiny bun, ridiculous frou frou
Shoes, bags, baskets like no one else before or since
You will be missed. R.I.P. Karl

  5. Thanks for the wonderful Chanel memories, Carol! I am so impressed with your sweeping curves and line drawings! In another life I want to follow my dream to become a fashion illustrator! What a loss to lose Karl.
