From exclusive one-on-one interviews with everyone from Karl Lagerfeld and Diane Von Furstenberg to Carolina Herrera and Roland Mouret, Savoir Flair has sat down with the most influential figures in the fashion industry over the past five years. In this installment of High Five, we celebrate our five-year anniversary with a look back at some of our most memorable interviews to date.
What was supposed to be a 20-minute interview turned into a nearly two-hour chat about life, love, and risk taking. We left this interview feeling like we had just caught up with a lifelong friend as opposed to a celebrated stranger – both inspired and in awe of Katrantzou’s humility and wisdom.
He has collections to sketch, celebrities to dress, and an empire to run. Yet Oscar de la Renta still made time to sit down with Savoir Flair for this intimate and fascinating interview for this thoughts on the modern woman.
We interviewed Carolina Herrera backstage at her Spring/Summer 2014 show in New York City. The epitome of grace, Herrera floated around backstage before her runway presentation with a pincushion on her dainty wrist, calmly adjusting folds on everyone from Karlie Kloss to Hilary Rhoda’s gowns.
According to our Managing Editor, sitting down with Roland Mouret “was perhaps one of the most enjoyable encounters” of her career. With his charming French accent, the designer gave us exclusive insight into his journey to becoming a designer and his thoughts on the illustrious size zero.
Although Jacobs rarely conducts interviews, he gave Savoir Flair an intimate glimpse into his thoughts and feelings regarding everything from designing his final collection for Louis Vuitton to the future of the Marc Jacobs empire – capturing a groundbreaking moment in the course of fashion.
