His stage in Fendi is one of the most outstanding of his career, in the course of this Lagerfeld, he revolutionized the way Fendi presented himself, included various eclectic influences such as Eskimo-inspired designs, medieval armor, and kimonos, all these applying his vision, which was well-received by critics of the fashion scene. During his years at Fendi, he introduced successful ready-to-use lines and styles, which made Fendi a global fashion brand.
After excelling at Fendi for almost two decades, he was contacted by Alan Wertheimer, president of the Chanel house, who offered him the position of creative director of the house; by this time Chanel was going through a hard moment, barely kept afloat with the sales of perfumes and some clothing, since Gabrielle’s death left the house uninspired and none of the designers hired in that period he had managed to recover the splendor and glamor that it had held for a long time. Taking into account the situation of the house, Lagerfeld considered the proposal as one of his biggest challenges, joined Chanel in 1983 and shortly after managed to consolidate the house again.
During the first years in the house, Lagerfeld, renewed the outdated style of Chanel, introducing appliques, sequins, and youth styles, without neglecting the elegance of the Chanel style. Starting the new millennium, Lagerfeld, decided to change his diet, losing 42 kilos in just one year, this feat was reported by him and his doctor in the bestseller The Karl Lagerfeld Diet (2004). With a new appearance he continued to design collections entire for Chanel and Fendi; per year he launched twelve collections, two for Fendi and ten with Chanel.
Lagerfeld, missed the most recent Chanel parade, due to fatigue, was subsequently admitted to the American Hospital in Paris, due to health problems. After several complications, he died on September 19, 2019.
