The End Of The Era...The Last of Greats Is Gone

The last of the great designers is gone. Yves St . Laurent passed away today.

He was my main inspiration as a child to pursue fashion. I even lived across the street from his Fashion house on a small street next to the Avenue Marceau. I have long since given up fashion design. Perhaps because fashion such as the one Mr. St. Laurent created doesn't exist anymore. Nowadays any pop tart of rap artist can call themselves a designer. Oh the watered down interpretations will live on in tribute,but we need more magicians such Yves.They don't come like that anymore.

I'm so sorry to hear about his passing. He had some of the most gorgeous clothes through the years.

I grew up reading Vogue and Saint Laurent was one of the absolute greats! It is a sad thing that he is gone. Now we get recycled '70s and everything.
