Italian designer Gianfranco Ferré passed away this weekend after suffering a massive brain hemmorhage in Milan.

Born in 1944, Ferré started out in 1970 as a jewelry and accessories designer after earning a degree in architecture. His first foray into fashion design came with a successful line of raincoats before being tapped by LVMH to helm Christian Dior, a position he held through 1996.

Ferré had just signed Julia Roberts and rock star Skin to star in a new ad campaign.
