If every picture has a story, then to be sure, every designer creation has a hidden tale. What inspires the men and women behind each dress, shoe or handbag we choose is a mysterious blend of genius and whimsy, life circumstances and illusions.

For Azzedine Alaia,  the "King of Cling," who began his life on a wheat farm in Tunisia, his visions were inspired by the pages of Vogue, (given to him by his mother's fashionable friend) and his twin sister. An early entry into the world of sculpture helped him perfect his sense of the human form and create stunning silhouettes.
