Fashion Designer Roberto Cavalli Dies At Age 83

Acclaimed fashion designer Roberto Cavalli has passed away at the age of 83.  In the early 1970s, Cavalli invented and patented a revolutionary printing procedure on leather, and he started creating patchworks of different materials.
After working for Hermès and Pierre Cardin, he presented his first namesake collection at the Salon for Prêt-à-Porter in Paris. Cavalli was just thirty years-old.  He opened his first boutique in 1972 in Saint-Tropez.
Fausto Puglisi, Creative Director at Roberto Cavalli said in a social media statement: “Dear Roberto, you may not be physically here with us anymore but I know I will feel your spirit with me always. It is the greatest honour of my career to work under your legacy and to create for the brand you founded with such vision and style. Rest in peace you will be missed and you are loved by so many that your name will continue on, a beacon of inspiration for others, and especially for me.”
“The Roberto Cavalli company shares condolences with Mr. Cavalli’s family loss. His legacy remains a constant source of inspiration” added Sergio Azzolari, CEO at Roberto Cavalli.
