Emanuel Ungaro, for years, has worked with some of the biggest names in fashion and the entertainment industry, including Catherine Deneuve, Gena Rowlands and Jacqueline Kennedy, says a report from the Hollywood Reporter.
However, Emanuel is said to have died at the age of 86 earlier this week. The journalist says that Emanuel Ungaro, originally from France, was perhaps best known for his use of bright colors and mixed prints. News of his death was confirmed on Sunday by the fashion house he founded in 1965.
In an Instagram post, the fashion house said Mr. Ungaro would remember his “flamboyance”, his “colors” and his “sensuality”. According to some sources, Emanuel died Saturday in Paris, according to numerous reports from French media.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Emanuel, born in 1933 in Aix-en-Provence, learned to sew by working alongside his father who was also an Italian tailor. At the age of 23, he moved to Paris, France, and only two years later, he started working with the famous fashion designer, Cristobal Balenciaga.
He then found work at Courreges before creating his own brand and company. As most know, this is the second fashion defeat this month, with Mama Cax dying earlier this week, commemorated by a plethora of celebrities, including Rihanna.
Reportedly, Mama Cax’s death was announced on Friday on his official IG account, and his family has confirmed the news of his death after spending a week in hospital. Page Six says she died on December 16.
Previously, Cax had complained of several health problems, including terrible stomach pain, which later turned out to be blood clots in several areas of his body, including his leg and thigh. The star started noticing the symptoms during a photo shoot in London, England.
Mama, an American of Haitian descent, was diagnosed with bone and lung cancer at the age of 14. She then had her hip replaced during sloppy surgery, which led to an amputation.
