Yesterday, the fashion world was lost someone who reworked the rules of fashion by putting women into elegant pantsuits that came to define how modern women dressed. Legendary designer Yves Saint Laurent, died Sunday evening, a longtime friend and associate Pierre Berge said. He was 71.
Saint Laurent was the last of an era of fashion designers that included Coco Chanel and Christian Dior, for whom Saint Laurent worked until Dior's death in 1957. After that he introduced his "Ligne Trapeze", when he became chief designer at Dior. He left Dior in 1961 and opened his own couture house, financed by Berge, in 1962.
In 1969, Saint Laurent design for men's wear, with media stars such as Mick Jagger, David Bowie and Andy Warhol in mind. Out went the pinstripes -- in came fashion modern men wanted to wear.
Saint Laurent is shy, introverted person. He was hiding from the world, and seeing very few people in his private life, But his design is apart of the fashion legend that we never forget...
