Azzedine Alaia is widely known as one of the most reclusive and mysterious fashion designers in the world, so when the fashion industry can’t get Alaia to sit down for an interview, they choose to feature his designs exclusively in a shoot, such as the Ataui Deng for Flaunt Winter 2011 editorial.

Model Ataui Deng looks gorgeous in Alaia couture designs, such as a dramatic forest green fur ensemble and a gorgeous black ruffled evening gown. The editorial shoot, which is titled ‘For You, My Calendar is Always Open,’ was shot by photographer David Bellemere and styled by Long Nguyen for Flaunt Magazine issue #118.

The Ataui Deng for Flaunt Winter 2011 photo shoot is a must-see for Alaia fans.
