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.
