A Sad Farewell

We will miss you Monsieur Yves Saint Laurent!

The fashion world will take time out to remember Yves Saint Laurent today as the funeral of the legendary designer, who died on Sunday evening,(who succumbed to a brain tumour, aged 71,) is held this afternoon in Paris.

Stefano Pilati, Christian Lacroix, Jean Paul Gaultier, John Galliano, Sonia and Nathalie Rykiel, Kenzo Takada, Valentino and Riccardo Tisci - as well as Saint Laurent's long-time business partner and confidante, Pierre Berge - are expected to be among the several hundred mourners attending the invitation-only service at Paris' Saint-Roch church on the Rue Saint-Honore.

Saint Laurent will be cremated and his ashes flown to a botanical garden in Marrakesh, Morocco, which borders a home he and Berge owned there.
