Karl Lagerfeld has been called the “Pope of Fashion,” and he now can add “Professor of Life” to his list of esteemed titles.
According to WWD, the legendary and always fascinating designer will be teaching a master class at the prestigious Paris Institute of Political Studies, or Sciences Po for short (and in French), on November 19. While the course will be a lesson in the Kaiser’s “view on the world, arts, creation and his life as a designer,” it won’t just be two hours of Lagerfeld waxing lyrical on his own (could you imagine?). The course will be held in a Q&A format, with editor-in-chief of Libération’s Next magazine Françoise-Marie Santucci moderating.
We have to admit we’re more than a little jealous of the Sciences Po communications students’ opportunity to ask Lagerfeld directly about his work at Chanel and Fendi, the true meaning behind his batshit crazy daily routine, Cara Delevingne‘s acting career, and deeper philosophical musings on what he’d do if invisible. We do, however, suggest that the kids read up on famous Lagerfeld quotes in The World According to Karl as a pre-class primer.
Unfortunately, it’s probably too late to matriculate at Sciences Po to snag one of the 500 seats reserved for students in the sure-to-be filled class. But, there will be 100 extra seats open for “invitation-only” guests. Good luck with that, but we can only imagine the cool, fashion-y types that will be filling those rows. Maybe they’ll even save a spot for Choupette.
