Karl Lagerfield has died aged 85

The creative director of Chanel passed away this morning in Paris. This comes a month after he failed to greet the audience at the end of a Chanel fashion show due to tiredness.

The German fashion guru was recognised globally for his distinctive appearance - white hair and sunglasses were his trademark look.

His career in fashion spanned the majority of his life. He first moved to Paris aged 14 to pursue his passion and quickly found himself designing collections for Chloe, Fendi, and many other huge names.

Also known for his larger-than-life character, Karl famously came out with some outrageous one-liners - and some now famous, inspiring quotes.

As a tribute to the late fashion designer who made his mark on the industry, and leaves behind a legacy, here are ten quotes Karl Lagerfeld once famously said.

“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”

“We live in a dark and romantic and quite tragic world.”

“One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress.”

“Don't look to the approval of others for your mental stability.”

“I’m very much down to earth, just not this earth.”

“Youthfulness is about how you live not when you were born.”

“Forgiveness is too easy. I can forget by indifference, but not forgive. I prefer revenge.”

“I want everyone to wear what they want and mix it in their own way. That, to me, is what is modern.”

“Clear thinking at the wrong moment can stifle creativity.”

“Music gives color to the air of the moment.”
