Designer Gustave Tassell, who created outfits for Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Princess Grace of Monaco, has died, aged 88.
Tassell passed away on 9 June (14) of complications from Alzheimer’s disease, according to his sister.
The Coty Award winner famously created Jackie Kennedy's wardrobe for a tour of India in 1962, when he was called one of America’s hottest new designers.
Tassell was the son of an amusement park tycoon, who studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.
He was studying art in New York in the late 1940s when he took a job as a window dresser and fell in love with fabrics and designing chic outfits for stylish women. He perfected his craft in Paris in the early 1950s.
