French designer Christian Audigier, the man who gave us the fashion crime wonderful gift of Ed Hardy has passed away.
He was 57.
According to TMZ, Audigier was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, a bone marrow disease, in January. It’s the same disease Good Morning America host Robin Roberts battled way back in 2012 (she’s doing fine, in case you were wondering).
