CO-FOUNDER OF YVES SAINT LAURENT, PIERRE BERGE DIES AT 86

The co-founder of French luxury fashion house Yves Saint Laurent, Pierre Bergé died in his sleep this morning at his home in Saint-Remy-de-Provence after a long illness.
Before Saint Laurent‘s death in 2008, Begré was his right-hand man and trusted partner, they both founded the Yves Saint Laurent couture house in 1961.
He remained an influential figure and was closely linked with countless other arts and cultural initiatives in France. In 1973, he was elected president of the Chambre Syndicale du Prêt-à-Porter Des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode and he founded the Institut Français de la Mode in 1986.

He also donated part of his fortune to AIDS research. May his soul rest in peace!
