Kevin Krier, founder and chief executive officer of Kevin Krier and Associates, died Wednesday in San Francisco at the age of 64.
The longtime fashion show producer died after a short illness, according to Anne Taylor-Davis.
Forward-thinking in his approach to fashion shows, award galas and image-making, Krier was among the first to encourage designers to pull back the curtain on their runway shows, collections and glamorous lives. Krier was an established presence on the American and European fashion scene for many years. Krier produced Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent shows for 10 years in collaboration with designer Tom Ford.
