Iconic Fashion Designer Karl Lagerfeld Has Passed Away

Fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld has died at age 85 after a cancer battle.

Lagerfeld is widely regarded as one of the most important and prolific designers of his generation and had held creative director roles at Fendi (since 1965), his namesake label (since 1974) and Chanel (since 1983) simultaneously.

The iconic designer is believed to have been unwell for two weeks before his death in a Paris hospital.

The House of Karl Lagerfeld has confirmed the news of his death, following French media reports. 

The official Instagram account for the fashion designer’s own label posted: “The House of KARL LAGERFELD shares, with deep emotion and sadness, the passing of its creative director, Karl Lagerfeld, on February 19, 2019, in Paris, France.”

Driven by a phenomenal sense of creativity, Karl was passionate, powerful and intensely curious.

“He leaves behind an extraordinary legacy as one of the greatest designers of our time, and there are no words to express how much he will be missed.”
