Den legendariske designer Hervé L. Leroux er død i en alder af 60 år. Féderation de la Haute Couture et de la Mode issued a statement confirming the news on Friday, according to The Cut.
Leroux-fødte Hervé Léger got his start on fashion started on brands like Fendi and Chanel before he started his own label Hervé Léger in 1985 and continued to celebrate his bandage dresses, which was especially popular among celebrities in the 90’s and begyndelsen af 2000’erne. Han mistede kommerciel brug af hans fødselsnavn i 1999, da BCBG Max Azria erhvervede sit Hervé Léger-mærke.
After the news of his passing, celebrities like Dita Von Teese took to social media to honor the late designer. “Very sad, we have to say goodbye to the genius @hervelegerleroux,” she wrote together with a photo gallery of the designer and her in his paragraphs. “He made the most exquisite dresses that showed a woman’s beauty, rather than distracting it. I will always treasure my afternoons in his studio right next to @maisonladuree, trying on dress after dress, really just for fun. “

“We would have the best time, I could honestly ever have used her dresses. @Hervelegerleroux ER Herve Leger (he had to change his name and start again) and he is the inventor and only true gentleman in the iconic bandage dress, “fortsatte hun. “Tak, kære Hervé, for alt det. Hvil i glamour, du bliver aldrig glemt.”
