German fashion designer and photographer, Karl Lagerfeld is dead.
Karl, 85, passed away in Paris, France this morning following several weeks of illness.
Before his death, Karl worked as the Artistic Director of luxury fashion house Chanel, as well as the creative director of the Italian fashion brand, Fendi. He also designed collections for his own eponymous fashion brand.
