YSL Remembered

While I was out on vacay the legendary designer Yves Saint Laurent lost his yearlong battle with brain cancer. The fashion icon was credited with empowering women by recreating the pant. His take on the pant made it a more elegant piece of a woman's wardrobe. The designer was quoted as saying "fashion was not only supposed to make women beautiful, but to reassure them, to give them confidence, to allow them to come to terms with themselves." It's this attitude that kept him highly regarding in fashion circles everywhere. When he retired from runway in 2002 the fashion world mourned the end of an era. Yves Saint Laurent, designer and icon, dead at 71.
