The famed designer has died aged 82, after a long battle with cancer. Having dressed Michelle Obama, and former first ladies Jackie Kennedy, Laura Bush and Hilary Clinton to more recently designing the dress Amal Clooney wore down the aisle, his work has been coveted by the A-List crowds since the early 60’s.
A stylistic force whose work spans decades and made a huge impact on both the catwalk and red carpets alike. He was born in the Dominican Republic, moving to Spain to study painting before working in fashion houses in Paris, later forming his own brand which catapulted him to success.
