I loved his designs!
I was watching Clueless today, and the scene where Cher is held up at gunpoint in her red Alaia dress made me think of those old times, and iconic designs he did!

Do any of you have any info on what happened to him??

Alaia still does his couture and his pret-a-porter , including his fantastic shoes.
He's as popular as ever, only thing is he does no shows, so some people think he's not around any longer, but.. ask his clients (including Sofia Coppola, she was wearing Alaia at the Globes )

Wow...I just scored a gorgeous vintage Alaia dress, perfect condition, practically unworn, exactly my size...for 15 dollars! Black wool knit, welted seams, "sculpted" sleeves...also very neo-gothic in mood.

Telling random friends who don't know Alaia just didn't cut it...had to post here...as I know you can appreciate my excitement.

he is carried at barneys. I go there every season to "Study". In my opinion He is the greatest Technical designer since Cristobal Balenciaga.

I saw a coat by him in Saks yesterday. It's made of this very thick and almost stiff wool with A-line shape and sculpture sleeves+collar. It was a piece of art. I tried it on and felt I was a character in a fairytale. It's $4,400 though...The SA said "do you have a saks charge card? use it to pay for the coat!" Of course I said no...I don't do that...I might be lucky enough to buy one when I'm more successful in my career though.

Harvey Nichols and Selfridges carry Alaia. Unsure about Harrods and Liberty. Matches used to, but they haven't bought any pieces for SS06...
