PARIS: The iconic German-born designer, Karl Lagerfeld was one of the most hardworking figures in the fashion world holding down the top design jobs at LVMH-owned luxury label Fendi from 1977, and Paris' family-owned power-house Chanel in 1983.
Chanel’s iconic couturier, Karl Lagerfeld, whose accomplished designs dominated high fashion for the last 50 years, has died. He was around 85 years old.
