The Fashion Industry Responds to the Notre Dame Cathedral Fire

There is no telling how much artistic inspiration was conceived under those high ceilings

Anyone who has made the pilgrimage to Paris in the name of fashion over the last 850 years, has likely stopped by to take a tour or photo of one of the cities most historical landmarks: Notre Dame de Paris. A grim scene took place as thousands of Parisians gathered and sang hymns under smoke and flames as the roof of their beloved cathedral collapsed on Monday afternoon.

While a stone portion of the cathedral is still intact, many have taken to social media to mourn for the loss of a hub that gave so many inspiration and faith. Below we have compiled a list of some of the biggest names in fashion as they posted the heartbreak they felt for the capital’s landmark.

?❤️? My heart is with you Paris ?❤️? so proud to be a part of the LVMH family. We must learn something from this, we are destroying the natural world so it’s only inevitable that man made one will crumble by its side. We must start looking after our planet. End of story… #NotreDame
