Gap co-founder Donald Fisher dies at 81




Donald G. Fisher, co-founder of Gap Inc., died Sunday in San Francisco after a battle with cancer, the company reports. He was 81.

Fisher and his wife, Doris, founded Gap Inc. in 1969. Today, the company's annual sales are in the neighborhood of $14.5 billion. Its brands include Old Navy, Banana Republic and more.

Here's a photo of the Fishers strutting their stuff four decades ago. I wonder when Mrs. F's diamond pattern pants will make a comeback?


Divas, let's send thoughts and prayers out to Doris Fisher this week as she grieves her husband. And as the fashion world grieves a legend, I ask you: What's your favorite Gap item?
