French-Japanese designer Takada Kenzo dies from COVID-19   

PARIS (AP) — Takada Kenzo, the iconic French-Japanese fashion designer well-known for his jungle-infused designs and free- spirited aesthetic influenced by his global travels, has died. He was 81.

The family said in a statement to French media on Oct. 4 that Takada died from complications from COVID-19 in a hospital near Paris.

"It is with immense sadness that KENZO has learned of the passing of our founder," the fashion house said in a statement. "For half a century, Mr. Takada has been an emblematic personality in the fashion industry — always infusing creativity and color into the world."

Takada was born on Feb. 27, 1939, in Himeji, Hyogo Prefecture. His love of fashion began after reading his sisters' fashion magazines.

Studying at the Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo, Takada went to Paris in 1965 to work as a freelance designer.

Though Takada had been retired from his house since 1999, Kenzo remains one of the most respected fixtures of high Paris fashion.
