In Episode 3 of “Creative Conversations”, Suzy is joined by the thoughtful, funny, and profound designer Alber Elbaz, as he enters a new fashion phase with the luxury goods consortium, Richemont Group.
Alber talks us through his career, from Geoffrey Beene to Guy Laroche then Yves Saint-Laurent Rive Gauche and 14 years at Lanvin, where he earned a reputation for creating looks loved by women the world over.
Fascinated by the world of medicine, Alber, explains that whenever he goes through a difficult time in his life, the only thing that saves him is going to work: ‘’It is my antibiotic.’’
He believes in storytelling and that we need to return to different ways of communicating today, especially to our students. The biggest issue they face is being exposed to an overload of information and data to absorb: “There is nowhere left in the brain to dream.”
