Azzedine Alaia, born in Tunis, Tunisia on February 26th in 1935 was a Tunisian couturier and shoe designer, particularly successful beginning in the 1980s.
His glamorous twin sister, Hafida, inspired his love for couture and a French friend fed Alaïa's instinctive creativity with copies of Vogue.
He then lied about his age to get into the Tunis Institute of Fine Arts, where he gained valuable insights into the human form and sculpture.
After his graduation, he privately dressed members of the world's jet set.
Devotees included both fashion-inclined celebrities and fashionistas: Grace Jones, Tina Turner, Raquel Welch, Madonna, Janet Jackson, Brigitte Nielsen, Naomi Campbell, Stephanie Seymour, Tatiana Sorokko, Shakira, Franca Sozzani, Isabelle Aubin, Carine Roitfeld, and Carla Sozzani.
On November 18th, 2017, it was announced Alaïa died in Paris. He was 82 years old.
This exotic Alaïa high heel shoe has a black animal print of calf fur.
