Great Designer Passes Away

Legendary fashion designer, Yves Saint Laurent has died at the age of 71.

After a long battle with brain cancer, the designer passed away at his home Sunday night. The fashion world will truly miss the influential fashion icon, who, along with Coco Chanel and Christian Dior, helped make Paris the ‘Fashion Capital of the World.”

Yves Saint Laurent was well known for helping women reach the peak of confidence with fashion. He gave women the empowerment with his authentic designs, namely reinventing women's pants as a fashionable and chic staple.

Pierre Berger, Saint Laurent’s close friend has been quoted as saying “Chanel gave women freedom and Saint Laurent gave them the power”. This influential fashion designer will truly be missed not only among the fashion world but also many women who wore his label. Let the legend live on!
