Paris fashion week closes with Spectacular Albert Elbaz Runaway tribute Show Love brings Love!

The fashion world mourn the loss of designer Alber Elbaz last April.

His designs drew a battalion of fans from celebrities like Beyonce, Natalie Portman, Julianne Moore and Meryl Streep to everyday women who wanted clothes that enhanced their beauty. Read more
