Andre Talley-1948-2022

A force in fashion, a larger than life personality, Andre Talley passed away today. A man of many contradictions in an industry based on elitism and privilege, such was the life of an icon who loved fashion along with it all its trappings, from his Louis Vuitton Tennis Towel to friendships with Lagerfeld and Saint Laurent.

The one time Vogue Editor at Large commanded respect in the fashion world. In the eighties Mr. Talley was one of the few African American faces to sit front row at many fashion shows.
