I am in total shock and actually hoping this isn’t true! Percy Irausquin was found dead in his bathroom today. Apparently the Dutch designer of Aruban heritage had slipped in his bathroom. He was only 39. Just a couple of hours ago I was reading an article about him at my grandmother’s house and now he is gone? This is so surreal to me. He was such a talented designer and definitely had a spot between my favourites. The Dutch have lost not only an amazing designer, but person. His clothing made the woman sexy, glamorous and above all elegant. In 2001 he won the Frans Molenaar prize. He produced a couture collection, a prêt-á-porter line and recently showed his 2009 summer collection at the Amsterdam Fashion Week. He will be missed in fashion and mostly as a wonderful individual.
