Today, on January 20, famous Ukrainian couturier Serhiy Yermakov died. This was announced by artist Anzhelika Rudnytska on Facebook.
"Serhiy Yermakov passed away. A Ukrainian designer, who almost lost his sight but did not lose the desire to create beauty, work, communicate, and live. Each of his dresses has always been an event. Serhiy generously shared his talent with others. He was delicate, sensitive, and unbreakable at the same time. Ukraine lost another talent that it was not able to appreciate in a proper way. It so upsetting, and it is sad to tears. Bright memory, Serhiy ... Rest with God ...," Rudnytska wrote.
Yermakov had diabetes and spent the last years of his life in a wheelchair. He was 48 years old. The exact cause of death of the designer is still unknown.
As we reported earlier, French fashion designer Pierre Cardin passed away at the age of 98. He died at a hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France.
Cardin used his name as a brand, initially a prestigious fashion brand, then in the 1960s extended successfully into perfumes and cosmetics.
