German haut couture designer and icon known for his own fashion label has died at age 85. His success in the fashion scene includes his work as the artistic director at Chanel and other collections that he created for fashion label Fendi.

“Thanks to his creative genius, generosity and exceptional intuition, Karl Lagerfeld was ahead of his time, which widely contributed to the House of Chanel’s success throughout the world,” Wertheimer said in a statement.

LVMH chairman and chief executive Bernard Arnault said the fashion world had lost a creative genius who helped make Paris the fashion capital of the world, and Fendi one of the most innovative Italian houses.
