According to CNN, iconic fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has passed away. "His unrivalled contribution to the fashion industry changed the way women dress and perceive fashion", Caroline Rush, chief executive of the British Fashion Council said in a statement.

Chanel said Virginie Viard, his longtime head of studio, will create the house's upcoming collections, but did not say whether her appointment was permanent.

"When people talk about the good old days, I say to people, 'It's not the days that are old, it's you that's old.' I hate the good old days".

At 14, Lagerfeld came to Paris with his parents and went to school in the City of Light. Over the following two decades he designed collections for a series of prestigious fashion houses including Chloe, Fendi and Valentino.

"He has inspired generations and, above all, he gave us the possibility to dream, with his capability to embrace the present and invent the future", Carlo Capasa, chairman of Italy's national fashion association CNMI, said.
