-German designer Karl Lagerfeld
was a giant in the fashion industry. The iconic designer served
as the head of Italian design house Fendi
and his own namesake brand, but is best known
for reinventing high fashion at Chanel. Lagerfeld
began his career in the 1950s as an assistant to French
designer Pierre Balmain. The designer continued
to make a name for himself in the fashion world, working at Chloe and becoming
part of Fendi in the 1960s. Lagerfeld took the reins
at Chanel in 1983. Uncle Karl's trademark
white ponytail, starched collar,
and dark sunglasses became a mainstay at
fashion weeks around the world. He wasn't without controversy. The designer was a frequent
target of PETA for using fur in designs. Lagerfeld's work attracted
a devoted celebrity following. Many shared their own tributes
to him on social media.

  1. BANKRUPT THEM NICK ——> The Radical Democrats, like The Fake News Medias, are racist, hate filled organizations that foments, fosters and facilitates the politics of racism and violence. Everything that they do is predicated upon their indigenous hatred of white people. The DHS should label the Radical Democrats and Fake News Medias as Domestic Terror Organizations. Democrats use racism as a political weapon against everything they are opposed to, fabricating racism where none exists. And worst of all, ignore their own racism while accusing others of the very thing they have engaged in for hundreds of years. The Democrats don’t care about the Constitution, or Americanism. It’s about power, and they are willing to do anything it takes to gain it. The thing is, it won’t last. Eventually, liberty will reveal itself to them, and the Democrats will reveal how dark and tyrannical they truly are.Either that, or true tyranny will take place and anything that disagrees with the Democrats will be silenced, jailed, and eventually executed gestapo-style.
