The fashion king, Karl Lagerfeld has reportedly died at the age of 85.
French media is reporting that the iconic fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has died after a short illness. The fashion heavyweight, who began his fashion career in the mid-1950s, was the genius behind fashion house CHANEL.
The German-born designer is believed to have died, in west-Paris, France, after a battle with an unspecified illness, and his cause of death is currently unknown.
The designer’s health had been of some concern to fans after he missed a catwalk bow in January at Paris Fashion Week for the first time.
