LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fred Segal, a notable Los Angeles-based celebrity fashion retailer, died Thursday. He was 87.
Segal died from the complications of a stroke at a Santa Monica hospital, his publicist said Friday.
Segal “was an innovator, a forward thinker, a rule-breaker, a mentor to so many, such a lover of life and a humanitarian,” his family said in a statement obtained by the Hollywood Reporter. “Anyone who knew him felt his powerful energy. He worked his whole life to have self-love and to teach all of us to love one another.”
His company’s website counts the Beatles, Diana Ross, Elvis Presley and Farrah Fawcett as his earliest fans.
