Fashion Quotes: Karl Lagerfeld Used To Hit Julien MacdonaldWelsh designer Julien Macdonald was spotted and hired by celebrated Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld at the youthful age of 21. However, according to Macdonald, who recently spoke to British Vogue, his tenure at Chanel wasn’t always a breeze:

“He used to carry around an old fashioned black fan and when you were being difficult he’d hit you with it. He’d taunt you then hit you with it – it was all done in a joking way and never done very hard, but I do remember it quite clearly. It was his alternative to a stick I suppose. Now Karl’s signature is his silver jewelry but then it was these specially crafted fans. I’m quite glad I had to deal with the fans and not the jewelry. You’d get knocked out if he jokingly hit you with any of those.”
