We all woke up this morning bright voices in chorus and read on the website the death of the Fashion Legend and Icon in France .. Yves St Laurent at 71. He will be remembered as a great designer and France and the world of fashion and his devotees will mourn his passing. He will be greatly missed!
Apparently the notion of women wearing Pant Suits was totally out of the question in the crazy hazy pre Sixties decade and it was about this time that Yves St Laurent introduced the Pant Suit for Women to wear and gave it credibility. Only yesterday I wore a pant suit and a pure white woman's shirt to a Multi Faith Peace Walk here in the Beautiful South resident in Southampton and it was greatly admired .. very much the professional poet .. of course.
Also the see thru shirts which we take for granted and wear today were designed by this great Legend of French Paris Fashion ... Yves St Laurent so he was not least a genius of his decade and time in fashion .. He was only 21 when he got into Fashion and became a World Leader in Fashion throughout the Fashion Business. As a retd Lect/Drama I and my students were greatly influenced by France's icon and legend Yves St Laurent and got many a rave review as a result .. Goodbye to Yves St Laurent .. thanks AP for blog .. keep on working!
