Remembering Gianfranco Ferré

Gianfranco Ferre

Italian designer Gianfranco Ferré died Sunday in Milan two days after suffering a brain hemorrhage. He was 62 years old.

Ferré, one of the leading fashion designers of the 1980s and ’90s, was known as the Architect for his well-structured suits and unfussy gowns. His trendless designs and singular vision were inspired by his roots as a student of architecture. He was the first “foreigner” to oversee a French design house, taking over as stylistic director at Christian Dior in 1989.

He will be missed.

  1. Went into his store on Rodeo Drive. Couldn’t afford anything, but, really wanted some of his shirts.
