Designer Yves Saint Laurent Collapses on Paris Street


Hours after his label’s Thursday night runway show in Paris, Yves Saint Laurent collapsed on the street. He was quickly rushed to the hospital by medics.

A spokesman for the designer said that he has checked out of the hospital, and is home recuperating.

Yves Saint Laurent came out publicly to the daily French newspaper Le Figaro in 1991, although he met Pierre Bergé, the man who would become his partner and fund the opening of his couture house, in the mid-50’s.
