The Tunisian- born, fine art school educated designer defied conventional seasonal collections, preferring to work and develop a theme, sometimes for years, remaining focused on his vision rather than market trends. Ideas were formed by draping, cutting and sculpting fabric directly to the model – parallels perhaps to Rodin and his ‘Monument to Balzac’ where the figure was created first followed by the elaborate draped cloak. Alaïa was working on the current exhibition at the Design Museum when he died last year – in what has turned out to be a retrospective of 60 examples of his craft from the past 35 years – displayed, appropriately, in ranks of classical doric-like figures.
