1994 Chloé by Karl Lagerfeld Runway Embroidered Roses Sheer Net Gown
This magnificent and highly coveted 1994 Chloé fall-winter collection runway embroidered blue roses sheer-net gown ensemble is a perfect example of why Karl Lagerfeld's talent has stood the test of time. Karl Lagerfeld sadly passed away in 2019, leaving behind an impressive legacy. Though Karl Lagerfeld is more well known as Chanel’s creative director, his work at Chloé for 25 years helped shape the brand to become internationally recognized and praised. As Vogue recently stated, "Given that this year’s Met Gala theme is 'A Line Of Beauty: Karl Lagerfeld', the renewed interest in the late designer’s vast archive should come as no surprise. While vintage Chanel will always be highly sought-after, his time at Chloé– where he did two stints, from 1963 to 1983 and from 1992 to 1997 – is long overdue a revival."
