Han Hye Jin wrote, “I cannot forget the first time I stood on his stage in Paris in 2006. As a fan, as a model, and as a woman, I was happy I could work with him. It’s hard to imagine Fendi and Chanel without him, but I pray that his final collections will wrap up successfully. He is another legend that has gone to rest by the side of Mademoiselle Coco and I will love and respect his memory. Karl, rest in peace.”
