IN MEMORIAM: Gianfranco Ferré, 1945-2007.Ferré posed for Marie Claire just one day before he collapsed from a brain hemorrhage. Dubbed "fashion's architect" for the voluminous, sculptural shapes he favored, whether for his own line or when he was at the helm of Dior from 1989 to 1996, he never failed to help mold each season with his signature simple grandeur.
