Designer Oleg Cassini Dies at 92
Famed Italian designer Oleg Cassini has died in New York City at the age of 92. The cause of death is undisclosed. Cassini was famed for creating Jacqueline Kennedy's stylish dresses.
Mr. Cassini said that shortly after John F. Kennedy was elected, he persuaded Jacqueline Kennedy to use him for her total look, rather than as one of many designers. He had long been a family friend. (Washington Post)
