Emanuel Ungaro, for years, worked with some of the most important names in the fashion and entertainment industry, including Catherine Deneuve, Gena Rowlands and Jacqueline Kennedy, says a report from The Hollywood Reporter.
However, Emanuel reportedly died at the age of 86 at the beginning of this week. The reporter states that Emanuel Ungaro, who came from France, was perhaps best known for his use of vibrant colors and mixed prints. On Sunday, the news of his death was confirmed by the fashion house he founded in 1965.
In an Instagram post, the fashion house stated that Mr. Ungaro would be remembered for his "extravagance," "colors," and "sensuality." Emanuel reportedly died on Saturday in Paris, says multiple reports from the French media.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Emanuel, born in 1933 in Aix-en-Provence, learned to sew by working with his father, who was also an Italian tailor. At 23, he moved to Paris, France, and only two years later, he began working with the famous fashion designer, Cristóbal Balenciaga.
He later found work with Courreges before making his own brand and company. As most know, this is the second loss in the fashion world this month, with Mama Cax dying earlier this week, commemorated by a lot of celebrities, including Rihanna.
According to reports, Mama Cax's death was announced on her official IG account on Friday, and her family confirmed the news that she died after spending a week in the hospital. Page Six states that he died on December 16.
Previously, Cax had complained of several health problems, including terrible pain in the stomach, which later turned out to be blood clots in multiple regions of his body, including the leg and thigh. The star began to notice the symptoms while doing a photo shoot in London, England.
Mom, a Haitian-American woman, was diagnosed with bone and lung cancer when she was 14 years old. Then his hip was replaced during a failed surgery, which led to an amputation.
