Losing a Fashion Icon
For those fashionistas out there, you already know that the fashion world lost a great one: Yves Saint Laurent. He was a pioneer in women's fashion over the years, bringingt power to women through his designs. He introduced the female pant suit, pea coat, and peasant blouse.
Today it's hard to find great designers in a celebrity-focused society where any "It" person can come out with a clothing line. The true talent has become hard to come by anymore. That's why most try to hold onto designers like Saint Laurent who change the perception of people through their clothes. They made clothes that we look at today and still find a way to incorporate them into our style.
Saint Laurent was 71. He died in his home in Paris.
