He's Like a Totally Important Designer

Azzedine Alaïa will make a rare presentation during Couture Fashion Week. I'm totally buggin'.
The reclusive designer announced yesterday that he would present a line of "semicouture" during Paris' Couture Fashion Week, which runs from July 4th-8th.
After the death of his sister in the mid-90s, Alaïa chose to retreat from the spotlight and presented only to a chosen few at his studio. Despite this, his designs remained popular with Madonna, Victoria Beckham, Carine Roitfeld, Michelle Obama and of course, adopted daughter, Naomi Campbell. [Vogue UK]
