André Courrèges turned 89 today, to the best of my knowledge he is still alive, but some websites killed him off with cancer.
“The Courrèges brand is still alive today, however, it is virtually dead with little to no standing in the fashion world. As André Courrèges sold control of his line in 1985 to a ready-to-wear firm, and later died of cancer. He will always be remembered for his iconic styles and part in the 1960s fashion movement. http://www.1960sclothing.co.uk/fashion-of-the-1960s/andre-courreges/
