Lagerfeld accepts fashion gong
(12-12 12:05)

A day after Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld's extravagant Metiers d'Art fashion show in Dallas I the US state of Texas, featuring models wearing fringe, feathers and leather, he accepted Neiman Marcus' fashion award at its flagship store.
Lagerfeld accepted the Neiman Marcus Award for Distinguished Service in the Field of Fashion, the same award that brought Gabrielle “Coco'' Chanel to Dallas in 1957. Lagerfeld is the only person who has been honored twice. He also won the award in 1980 for his work at Chloe.
Lagerfeld picks a city linked to the Chanel fashion house for the theme of the show staged each December to highlight the work of its artisans. For Tuesday night's runway show at Dallas' Art Deco exhibition venue Fair Park, Chanel turned one of the halls into a barn, complete with a hay-scattered runway. Models sported Western-style hats and boots. Many outfits included Native American-inspired prints, with most of the models wearing a single feather in their hair. The final model was dressed in an all-white ensemble that included fringed pants and a floor-grazing feather headdress.
Lagerfeld, who is German, said after the show Tuesday night that he was inspired by “the idea of the old Texas, even before the Civil War.''
