“Daniel has touched so many lives through his incredible talent, craftsmanship and vision of beauty,” added Suzie. “He turned a simple piece of fabric into something truly magical and made the women he dressed shine like diamonds.

“I know how much he will be missed by all his friends, colleagues and clients from his fashion glory years.

“He will always be fondly remembered for his wicked sense of humor and sharp wit, his appreciation for French champagne, diamonds and bling, yellow roses, his love of a good party, expensive cars and dancing like everyone is watching ( because they were!)

“Rest in peace lovely Daniel. You are now safe and can once again be the man you want to be in heaven by dressing all of these beautiful angels in your creations.
