Following Friday's fatal attacks on the city of Paris, which left 129 dead and more than 350 injured, fashion designers have united to speak out against terrorism.
Salma Hayek's husband and Frenchmen François-Henri Pinault, who is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Kering, shared his thoughts saying: "Once again, Friday night, Paris suffered from a terrorist attack with a scale and horror unprecedented in France. Everyone — we are all profoundly shocked by this tragedy. Our thoughts go to the victims, their families, their loved ones. This attack is an attack against our way of life, against our values, against liberty and against humanity. Under these circumstances, the most appropriate attitude is to continue living normally, by showing courage, solidarity and vigilance."
The attacks come just one day after Beirut suffered the same fate with 43 losing their lives.
Several other designers have chimed into the conversation on the fight against terrorism with Christian Lacroix saying: "Love, light, peace: This is what we have to find, inspire and spread." While Karl Lagerfeld strolled the streets of Paris and even stopped by the shop Colette, saying "life must go on".
Some stores in the city of Paris stayed open including Zadig & Voltaire and Paul & Joe, while Michael Kors, Barbara Bui and Vanessa Bruno chose to close. Beirut design businesses continue to remain open.
