He expressed his grief over Instagram on Tuesday July 2nd.

A statement provided by the label classified the designer’s death as “unexpected”, though, no further information was provided. A post-mortem probation was also conducted on Tuesday July 2nd but still resulted irresolute, leaving a breach for further tests, the police statement added.

Graduated from Central Saint Martins School of Art, he released his first collections dating back to 2008. The father remarked he’d been “praised for his tenacious yet sensitive exploration of socio-political issues, particularly those pertaining to the middle east ad its sometimes strained relationship with the west.”
