On Friday, Spanish fashion designer Paco Rabanne passed at the age of 88 years old.

He was known for his outstanding clothing designs and the establishment of top clothing brands. 

Rabanne's death was confirmed by Puig, the parent company of his brands, describing that the late icon "marked generations with his radical vision of fashion and his legacy will live on".

Rabanne gained global fame for his eccentric designs.

Puig's fashion president, José Manuel Albesa, praised Rabanne's designs, saying that they "made transgression magnetic".

Albsa added: "Who else could induce fashionable Parisian women to clamour for dresses made of plastic and metal."

 "That radical, rebellious spirit set him apart: There is only one Rabanne."

Marc Puig, chairman and chief executive officer of Puig, described Rabanne a "major personality in fashion" and paid tribute to his "daring, revolutionary and provocative vision, conveyed through a unique aesthetic".
