Italian fashion designer Roberto Cavalli, known for his animal prints on leather and textiles, has died aged 83.

The fashion house that bears his name announced the death of Cavalli on Instagram but provided no details.

He set up his company in the 1970s. His designs have been worn by stars like Brigitte Bardot, Sophia Loren, Kim Kardashian, and Jennifer Lopez.

Cavalli's creative director, Fausto Puglisi, says the designer would continue to be seen as "a beacon of inspiration for others."

Cavalli was born on 15 November 1940 in Florence, a city known for its leatherwork.
