Fashion Designer Karl Lagerfeld Dead At 85 :

Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has died, aged 85, in Paris.

The German designer, who was the creative director for Chanel and Fendi, was one of the industry’s most prolific figures, and worked up until his death.

Lagerfeld also designed collections for his own brand and collaborated with high street brand H&M.

The designer had been unwell for several weeks, and had missed a number of fashion shows.

Many fashion industry leaders have paid tribute to Lagerfeld, including Italian designer Donatella Versace.


The designer was best known for his association with the French label Chanel.


He began his long successful career with the fashion house in 1983, a decade after Coco Chanel died. Lagerfeld’s designs brought new life to the label, adding luxury glitz to the prim tweed suits the couture house was best known for.
