This guy made me and a lot of other people in the clothing industry a lot of money!  He was a visionary that took a brand to the highest point of the clothing chain and was able to do it classy and ghetto at the same time!  I remember his product catered to everyone, Men, Woman and Children of all ages and ethnicities!!  Brands today aspire to be able to accomplish a challenge like this everyday and can't come close to his accomplishment's.  His product's were hanging in Saks, Bloomingdales, Macy's, Costco, Sam's club, and also at every flea market all at the same time.  He had no shame in his game.  If someone had the money to pay he had the product to ship and somehow none of the stores affected each other!  I always wonder if anyone will be able to acheive the milestones and great heights that Christian Audiger had during his run!

Christian Audigier, the French fashion designer responsible for popularizing the Von Dutch and Ed Hardy brands in the early 2000s, has died after battling cancer.

Christian began working in fashion when he was 14-years-old, and after moving to NYC in his early 20s, the Avignon, France native worked with brands like Guess, Levis, Diesel, American Outfitters and Bisou Bisou. Over the years, Christian accumulated a $250 million fortune from an empire consisting of various fashion brands, a nightclub, a line of wine and television appearances.

The 57-year-old was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome, the same bone cancer that affectedGood Morning America anchor Robin Roberts, in January. A spokesperson from Iconix, the company that represents Ed Hardy, told Page Six in a statement, “We are deeply saddened by the passing of Christian Audigier, the business innovator who found tattoo artist, Ed Hardy and transformed his artwork into the iconic brand. Although, Christian had not been involved in the Ed Hardy brand in recent years his presence will be greatly missed.”
