Each of the participants — a mix of established luxury houses and smaller labels like Thebe Magugu and Wales Bonner — will create one bespoke look “inspired by Alber’s legacy or a special take on an iconic silhouette,” a statement from Elbaz’s label AZ Factory read. Lanvin, where Elbaz served as creative director from 2001 until he was abruptly fired in 2015, is also among those participating.

The looks will be showcased in a livestreamed event on Oct. 5. In honour of the late designer’s wishes to bring the fashion industry together, the event’s format takes inspiration from the “Théâtre de la Mode” exhibition in 1945, which saw over 60 couturiers come together in solidarity following the end of the second world war.
