NEWS STAFF | posted Tuesday, Feb 19th, 2019

Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has died in Paris at the age of 85, French media is reporting.

Lagerfeld started his fashion career in 1955 as an assistant to Pierre Balmain.

Over the decades he became a staple in the fashion world, usually seen in his signature black and white attire and waving his white fan.

In 1974 Lagerfeld launched his own clothing line and in 1983 Chanel announced he would serve as creative director.

His designs were recently a focus of an episode of the Netflix show 7 Days Out, which looked at the days leading up to the Chanel Haute Couture Fashion Show during Paris Fashion Week.
