Herve L. Leroux Dies At 60
HERVE L. LEROUX has died at the age of 60. News of the French designer, who created the bandage dress that was the uniform of the supermodels in the Nineties, came via a statement from Federation de la Haute Couture et de la Mode on Friday.

Leroux cut his teeth as Fendi and Chanel before launching his own label, Herve Leger, in 1985. In 1999 the brand was acquired by BCBG Max Azria in 1999, when Leroux lost commercial use of his name.

He continued to design red carpet confections for stars such as Cate Blanchett, Jessica Chastain and Dita Von Teese, who took to Instagram to share a tribute to her late collaborator.

"I'd say he was the only dressmaker that could accomplish a truly modern Madame Gres goddess gown," she wrote. "I loved him for his wit, his candor, his sublime elegance and of course, his talent, which, came from authentic obsession, with no care for the commerciality of fashion." The coterie of girls who wore his girdle-tight elasticated dresses would undoubtedly attest to this too.

"See, there is a difference between me and you. When you hear Celine you think of Dion. I think of the brand."

So sad. I hope he rest in peace. Enjoyed watching his 90s runway shows with those bodacious supermodels on Youtube.

Sad loss, Rip! Imo his work is as iconic as the supermodels. Bodycon will be back once we are past the PC wave. I quite like some of the current pieces uder Max A.
