Elio Fiorucci Passes Away
Fashion designer Elio Fiorucci died today at his home in Milan at the age of 80. Fiorucci was a ‘fashion industry pioneer’ and brought the unconventional style of Swinging London to Milan. He opened his first store in 1967 and was good friends with Andy Warhol, Keith Haring and Madonna. (Oh what, wow! Remember Sister Sledge singing “Halston, Gucci, Fiorucci”?) In 1970, Fiorucci launched his namesake ready-to-wear line, which focused on denim pieces at affordable prices.
