27th of March was the day that my dear friend Carlos Falchi died, but I believe that celebrating his life is in order.
A charismatic and talented man, that left a great legacy behind.
A craftsman that created masterpieces from very little, quoting an article written for him in the NEW YORK TIMES β€œHe was supplementing his income as a busboy by making hand-sewn leather clothing for the likes of Mick Jagger, Miles Davis, Tina Turner, Patti Smith and Andy Warhol, dyeing the skins himself in the bathtub of his apartment.’’
The last time I saw him was at my 60th surprise birthday party in New York and that memory I shall cherish.
Goodbye Carlos.
