Goodbye to a Fashion Legend : We love you YSL!

I had already planned on seeing the fashion documentary on YSL in Seattle tonight, but it wasn’t until I arrived at the screening that I was informed of the passing of Yves St. Laurent overnight in Paris. YSL was an amazing haute couture designer, famous for taking over House of Dior at the age of 21. He is one of the most influential designers of his time and will be remembered along with iconic fashion designers like Coco Chanel and Balenciaga for his contributions to the fashion industry as we know it.

It’s only right that we pay homage tonight to an amazing man who gave us the fabulous quote, "Fashion Fades. Style Remains"….and so will your memory YSL. We love you.
