THE INFLUENTIAL CREATIVE DIRECTOR OF CHANEL PARIS FASHION HOUSE, KARL LAGERFELD PASSES AWAY AT AGE 85…

AFTER 36 YEARS OF BUILDING FASHION EMPIRE LEAVING LONG TIME FRIEND AND COLLEAGUE AS NEW SUCCESSOR….

Legendary style icon, Karl Lagerfeld passed away today; Tuesday, February 19, 2019 in Paris at the age of 85. House of Chanel Paris, confirmed to CBS earlier today. Cause of death has not been released as of yet, but local media sources disclosed that there have been concerns regarding Lagerfeld’s health since fashion week January 2019, when the creative director did not appear at the end of the Chanel fashion show and other sources reveal that Lagerfeld had miss 2 of the Chanel haute couture shows in January. Chanel only disclosed Lagerfeld was feeling tired, stating “Mr. Lagerfeld, artistic director of Chanel, who was feeling tired, asked Virginie Viard, Director of the creative studio of the house, to represent him.”

Timeline of Karl Lagerfeld’s professional achievements and contributions to the fashion industry.

 

Chanel announced today that Virginie Viard is Lagerfeld’s successor. Viard is seen in many media photos working closely together with Lagerfeld at events. According to close sources of the French fashion house, it has been disclosed that viand is a longtime friend and close colleague of Lagerfeld, somewhat of a “right hand man”. Lagerfeld also mentions his relationship to viand in a documentary called “7 days out” on Netflix, stating “Virginie is the most important person, not only for me but also for the atelier, for everything. She is my right arm and even if I don’t see her, we are on the phone all the time.” 

Left: Lagerfeld, Right: Viard

Viard has worked with Lagerfeld for over 30 years and started as an intern at Chanel in 1987. The Fashion house of Chanel revealed in their announcement earlier today that “so that the legacy of Gabrielle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld can live on.”

It is clear that Chanel is confident in Virginie Viard to fulfill Lagerfeld’s line of succession for the French fashion house. It seems to me that Viard is the most appropriate choice for the new creative designer of Chanel, and was most likely groomed to become Lagerfeld’s successor and inherit his role and responsibility. I am confident that Chanel has made a good business decision and that Viard is not only capable, but

inspired to continue the legacy that Karl Lagerfeld has build for the fashion industry.

I express my deepest condolences go out to the loved ones of this visionary,  whose iconic contributions shaped the fashion industry of the largest house of fashion. Karl Lagerfeld’s legacy will continue to inspire us ,through the designs and creativity, has has left to the multi billion dollar industry which was greatly impacted by this man.

Will continue to update.

Warm regards,

    What’s up?

    I found this article very interesting…please read!

    Do you remember the blockbuster hit film The Matrix that was released in 1999? You may not know this, but it has deep spiritual implications concerning the times we are living in and Bible prophecy.

    It tells a story of how these “agents” are trying to turn us into machines. We are closer then ever before for this to become a reality when they cause us to receive an implantable microchip in our body during a time when physical money will be no more.

    You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?

    “He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…

    You also may have heard of the legendary number “666” that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means. This article shares something I haven’t seen before, and I don’t think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666. This is no hoax. Very fascinating stuff!

    …Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666″ (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

    To see all the details showing why the Bible foretold of all these things, check out this article!

    Article: https://biblewoke.com/rfid-mark-of-the-beast-666-revealed

    GOD is sending out His end time warning:

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, ‘If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name'” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    In the Islamic religion they have man called the Mahdi who is known as their messiah of whom they are waiting to take the stage. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.

    He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith…

    “In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned — by people who don’t know me — or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” – Barack Obama

    …but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    So what’s in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface…

    “And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

    Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

    baraq – Biblical definition:

    From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk’)

    Barak ‘O’bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the “heights” of Heaven.

    bamah – Biblical definition:

    From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw’)

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Seek Jesus while He may be found…repent, confess and forsake your sins and trust in the savior! Jesus says we must be born again by His Holy Spirit to enter the kingdom of God…God bless!
