Alber Elbaz has an unconditional design talent and an approach to creating clothes that is unique in terms of creativity. Worldwide fame was brought to the fashion designer by his work in the Parisian house of Lanvin, which was revived in the 21st century only thanks to thet of Elbaz. However, the scandalous parting with the brand after 14 years of cooperation noticeably crippled Albert, whose name today cannot be found in the headlines and on the front pages of the press. It seems that such a long work in one place still contributes to the professional burnout of specialists in creative professions.

Yes, over the past year Elbaz managed to collaborate with the Converse brand, launching a line of premium Avant Converse sneakers for it. Yes, the designer released the Superstitious perfume, created in collaboration with the French brand Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle. However, Albert still hasn't recovered from the blow of being fired from Lanvin. Recently, the fashion designer made a hot and emotional speech at the CNI Luxury conference held in Oman. Here Elbaz spoke about the current problems of the fashion industry, and also complained about the state of his own affairs.

Of course, the designer could not help but let go of a couple of prickly hairpins addressed to the fashion house that offended him, as he himself believes. Elbaz noted that after parting with him and appointing Bukhra Jararr as the new creative director, the Lanvin brand has noticeably lost in revenue.

One of the main themes of Albert's speech at the conference was the increase in the number of collections that annually release luxury brands in an attempt to compete with fast fashion. Confused about the personal and the global, the designer stated, “Every time I talk to my fashionable family, I hear the same complaints. Too many shows, too many collections. Moscow Fashion Week? No, it seems to be Indian Fashion Week. Too Much Confusion! What season are we watching now? Autumn winter? Spring Summer? Is this a resort collection? And more, and more, and ad infinitum. It turned out that in the end, no one is happy. There is too much fear and not enough love."

Naturally, Albert also mentioned in his speech the position of the contemporary artist from fashion, which he has always been considered. In his speech, he stressed: “When we are engaged in creativity, we must, first of all, start with dreams and intuition. Marketing comes later. Of course, I know that trusting your intuition is risky. I know that a mistake can be very costly and shareholders can fire you. But we all know that the most high-profile discoveries in history happened because people trusted their intuition."

Concluding his speech, Elbaz asked a rhetorical question that his psychiatrist once asked him: “What if women today can buy a new face, new lips, new breasts, buttocks, hair, skin, then the body is a new dress? Perhaps this is the reason why there are so many unemployed designers? If the body is a new dress, what is the role of contemporary designers?"
