Egon Von Furstenberg

Egon Von Furstenberg an eccentric fashion designer and aristocrat, died on June 11. Cause of death was not released. He was 57. Born in Switzerland, von Furstenberg was descended from a noble German family on his father's side, and from the Italian Agnelli family (owners of the Fiat automotive empire) on his mother's side. Although Egon planned to seek his fortunes in the banking industry, he changed his mind in the late 1960s and became a clothing designer.
Von Furstenberg learned the trade at the Fashion Institute of Technology and by working as a buyer for Macy's in New York City. After designing men's clothing and apparel for plus-sized women, he refined his focus to accentuate a stronger emphasis on color and glamour. Although he released a ready-to-wear line, von Furstenberg was best known for designing elegant outfits for the fashionable and wealthy.
Von Furstenberg was married to Lynn Marshall. His first marriage to fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg ended in divorce.
