AZ Factory Tribute show for Alber Elbaz, through the lens of Oriane Verstraeten

On October 5th, the fashion world gathered in Paris for one of the biggest tribute shows ever. AZ Factory, founded by the late Alber Elbaz, organized a joyful tribute runway show. With looks from 45 of the world’s biggest designers, each honoring Alber Elbaz, the show was one of the highlights of this season’s fashion month.

The front row was filled with the designer’s family, friends, colleagues, and peers: Dries Van Noten, Rick Owens, Naomi Campbell, Olivier Rousteing, Iris Van Herpen, Pierpaolo Piccioli, Maria Grazia Chiuri, and many more.

Alber’s legacy turned into NFTs

Apart from a showstopping tribute, AZ Factory also launched a unique NFT project. “NFTs have gotten exponentially more popular in the last few months, so we thought about how we could make Alber’s legacy eternal, unique but also available to the wider public while remaining exclusive. Alber’s unique Designs turned into NFTs connected to the limited edition garments was the answer,” the AZ Factory team tells us.

Photographer Oriane Verstraeten was backstage to capture this special moment.
