French fashion designer Pierre Cardin has been released from hospital after he was admitted for emergency medical treatment on Sunday (29Nov09).
The veteran style icon fell ill at a Paris, France airport shortly before he was due to board a flight to Greece, and was taken by ambulance to the city's American Hospital.
Doctors told the 87 year old he had suffered a minor "vasovagal episode", a fall in blood pressure which can lead to unconsciousness.
Cardin was discharged later that night. The designer was hospitalised in May (09) with similar symptoms, linked to his high blood pressure.
