There’s only one person powerful enough to unite fashion’s top designers, key players and models under one roof: Karl Lagerfeld.

Four months after the renowned designer and photographer passed away at the age of 85, his luxury houses, Chanel, Fendi, and Karl Lagerfeld, and theater and opera director Robert Carsen, hosted a celebration in Paris to honor his legacy, aptly titled Karl Forever. “Karl Forever: A one-of-a-kind celebration, for a one-of-a-kind man,” a caption read under a tribute to Lagerfeld on the official Karl Lagerfeld Instagram page. Held at the Grand Palais, a venue Karl frequented to for his extravagant Chanel runway shows, there wasn’t a spot in the venue that guests passed that didn’t remind them of the legend. Karl was memorialized through a series of black and white portraits peppered throughout the space and a large tapestry that played videos filmed throughout Karl’s career, including interviews with Baz Luhrmann, Anna Wintour, and Carine Roitfeld remembering their dear friend. There was even an appearance from Lagerfeld’s cat, Choupette.
