Gaby Aghion, Founder of Chloe, Dies at 93

Gaby Aghion, the founder of Chloé died this past Saturday at her home in Paris.  The Spring 2015 collection designed by Claire Waight Keller, was shown Sunday and was dedicated to its founder Gaby Aghion.

It is nice that Aghion lived to see her label celebrated in the exhibit, Chloé.  Attitudes, at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris in 2012.

"There is no characteristic Chloé woman.  She is neither blonde nor dark-haired.  But she is typically Parisian."
Gaby Aghion
