After retiring as a designer in 2002, Yves Saint Laurent has died, aged 71, at his home in Paris. Born 1st August 1936, he began his illustrious career at the House of Dior. As Mde. Chanel and Christian Dior are also remembered, Mr Laurent will forever be hailed as an innovator, and symbol if you will, of 20th century fashion. But I don't need to tell you all this, I am quite sure that both his name and famous 'Le Smoking' suits, are etched permanently in your minds.
Farewell to a Master.
