“Tatiana passed away this morning in California. The cause of death was breast cancer, — Agent Corinne Nicholas told Insider.
The model is survived by her son, sister and parents. The agency Model CoOp, with which she collaborated, also confirmed the news of her death. Our beautiful Tatyana Patitz has passed away. Tatiana's career in the fashion industry stands apart thanks to her work with Patrick Demarchelier, Herb Ritz and Peter Lindbergh, — the agency said in a statement.
“Today, the fashion industry has lost an icon,” said another agency post, quoting Anna Wintour as saying that Patitz has always been the “European icon of chic.”
Born in Hamburg, Patitz grew up in Sweden, where she began her modeling career in 1983. Photographer Peter Lindbergh helped propel her through the ranks, especially with her famous 1988 photo “White Shirts: Six Supermodels, Malibu.” In January 1990, he photographed a model for the cover of British Vogue.
George Michael saw the issue of British glossy magazine and filmed Patitz in his music video for the song “Freedom '90”.
Later, she began to walk on the biggest catwalks in the world. Patitz has worked with Perry Ellis, Valentino, Fendi, Donna Karan, Chanel and other fashion houses. She was also Gauthier's muse.
