Fashion World Mourns For Saint Laurent At Awards
Top designer Diane von Furstenberg held back tears as she gave a somber speech remembering the legendary French designer - who died on Sunday (01Jun08) - at the Council of Fashion Designers of America awards gala in New York City's Public Library, reports the New York Daily News.
Von Furstenberg, the head of the organisation, told guests: "Tonight the world of fashion is mourning. Yves is an artist who always surprised us with his silhouette and colour palettes. He was a magician who changed the way women dressed forever.
"Like so many great artists, his life and his work really do live on."
Saint Laurent died from a brain tumour at the age of 71, following a long period of bad health.
