What will Milan Fashion Week be like without Karl Lagerfeld?
The world had just lost another icon and this time it is surrounding the fashion world.
According to reports in France, Karl Lagerfeld who is the fashion visionary and creative director of Chanel has just died at the age of 85.
He was best known for his luxury work that transformed fashion at the fashion house Chanel since 1983.
Lagerfeld was rushed to the hospital on Monday night and passed away on Tuesday morning.
According to official reports, he died due to ill health. This was based on rumors circulated when he missed his final bow at Paris fashion week in late January.
He died just before Milan Fashion Week, and was said to be working right up until his death as he was giving instructions to his team about the Fendi Autumn and Winter 2019 collection which was said to be on the runway at Milan Fashion week this coming Thursday.
Everyone is shocked by the news as people began to send their condolences all over social media.
