LOS ANGELES — Fred Segal, a notable Los Angeles-based movie star vogue retailer, died Thursday. He was 87.
Segal died from the problems of a stroke at a Santa Monica hospital, his publicist mentioned Friday.
Segal “was an innovator, a ahead thinker, a rule-breaker, a mentor to so many, such a lover of life and a humanitarian,” his household mentioned in an announcement obtained by the Hollywood Reporter. “Anybody who knew him felt his highly effective vitality. He labored his complete life to have self-love and to show all of us to like each other.”
His firm’s web site counts the Beatles, Diana Ross, Elvis Presley and Farrah Fawcett as his earliest followers.
Segal opened his first store in West Hollywood in 1961, the place he bought denim denims and flannel and velvet ensembles, the Los Angeles Instances reported.
The Hollywood Reporter mentioned Segal’s ivy-covered location in West Hollywood turned a star hotspot over time and was featured prominently within the 1995 basic teen comedy movie “Clueless.”
“Lucy! The place’s my white collarless shirt from Fred Segal?” Alicia Silverstone’s Cher says.
The Hollywood Reporter mentioned it was not unusual to see actress Cameron Diaz or different main stars like Jennifer Aniston perusing the retailers at Fred Segal or eating at its restaurant.
He’s survived by his spouse, 5 kids and two stepchildren.
