Karl Lagerfeld, the famed German fashion designer and artistic director for Chanel, Fendi and his own eponymous label, has died at age 85.

Lagerfeld had been Chanel's creative director since 1983 and Fendi's since 1965. You shot my first fashion shoot & I was so nervous to work w such an icon! He was a giant in my industry and a man who gave me and so many others an abundance of wonderful opportunities and experiences in fashion, art and life. Over the following two decades he designed collections for a series of prestigious fashion houses including Chloe, Fendi and Valentino. "Karl was brilliant, he was wicked, he was amusing, he was generous beyond measure, and he was deeply kind".

"He is a force of nature, coupled with an enigmatic persona and an original perspective on fashion and pop culture", a short bio on his website reads.

In the biography featured on the Karl Lagerfeld's website, the designer is said to be born in 1938. "There will never be another Karl Lagerfeld".

"My problem as a child was that I was bored to death because I wanted to be a grown-up person", he said in a 2011 interview with the U.K.'s Independent newspaper.

This was the reason for which he's been missing important fashion shows. She also once said: "I love to please him, but also surprise him", and described him as "very sensitive, like all creative people, but very faithful, generous - which might not be what people would guess".

As arguably the most influential person in fashion, Lagerfeld had the opportunity to spark meaningful change beyond the bottom lines of fashion houses and the length of next season's hemlines.

"Karl your genius touched the lives of so many".
