Azzedine Alaïa Once Drew on Socialite Susan Gutfreund’s Body with Chalk

The interior designer and socialite says that fashion's always been a part of her life – going back to the '80s, when Azzedine Alaïa worked his magic at her fitting with nothing more than a piece of jersey and chalk.

I've been passionate about fashion
00:06
for as long as I can remember.
00:08
I used to make clothes for my dolls.
00:11
Or I would do long dresses
00:12
and I'd bead them and
00:15
things like that.
00:16
I once gave a lecture at Sotheby's about
00:19
collecting wearable art
00:21
and that was one of the questions,
00:23
do mean you actually wear someone else's clothes.
00:26
And I said I absolutely do.
00:29
And I remember also having an experience with Azzedine Alaia
00:34
in the early 80's when he took a piece of jersey
00:38
and draped it on me and then took chalk
00:42
and chalked out the dress on my body.
00:44
And then when I received the dress
00:47
it was all stitched where he'd done the chalk marks.
00:50
It fit like a glove then,
00:51
doesn't fit so much like a glove now. [laughs]
00:54
Fits more like Spanx. [laughing]
