The Japanese founding father of the Kenzo trend model has died from Covid-19, in keeping with a spokesman for the agency quoted by French media.
Kenzo Takada died on the American Hospital in Paris on the age of 81, his assertion says.
Known for his vibrant graphic and floral prints, he was the primary Japanese designer to achieve prominence on the Paris trend scene.
He settled in France within the 1960s and spent the remainder of his profession there.
With his “practically 8,000 designs”, the Japanese designer “by no means stopped celebrating trend and the artwork of dwelling”, his spokesman stated.
Born in 1939 close to Osaka, Kenzo Takada arrived in France in 1965 by boat and settled in Paris.
He based the internationally recognized model below his first title within the 1970s.
He offered his clothes model to luxurious conglomerate LVMH in 1993 and retired from trend six years later.
