R.I.P. Gaby Aghion (1921 - 2014) Founder of the house of Chloe
Gaby Aghion passed away today at the age of 93. She founded Chloe in Paris in 1952 as a rejection of the rigid, form fitting clothes so prevalent to the era. Aghion did not care for couture, preferring to sell luxury ready to wear straight off the rack to the intellectuals of Paris rather than to the social elite. 
In the mid-1960s she hired a young Karl Lagerfeld from Patou, who remained with the house on and off until 1972, from where he then joined Fendi.
On a personal note, my dream wardrobe would be filled with vintage Seventies-era Chloe. The clothes are so beautiful I could look at them all day and not be bored.

I just found out Gaby Aghion passed away 3 days ago. She founded Chloé, which is my favorite brand of clothing. What an inspiring lady who had an equally inspiring life.

I still haven’t decide what classes I’m taking (signed up for a bunch and need to decide which to drop) and I have an inform internship interview/chat with a professor tomorrow (???!!!!) and apparently summer is over.

So right now, I am SCREAMMMING.
