The Death of American Icon, Andre Van Pier

Top fashion designer Andre Van Pier died from liver failure in a NYC hosital in August of 2008, from his battle with Hepatitis C, the same liver disease that Pamela Anderson has. In the 1980s in the fashion industery in NYC Andre Van Pier was a Icon, yet virtually unknown to the general public. Andre Van Pier died in a NYC hospital all alone and broke and buried by the state in a unmarked grave in August of 2008. Long gone where the days that he ruled the fashion trends and dressed the stars and the wealthy ladies,in his most classic, chic fashion. using the most expensive fabrics and simple designs, he was a marketing expert and with his impecable taste and his perfectionist he was one of a kind.

MICHAL JACKSON, MADONNA, image came from Van Pier in the early eighties, as he dressed the rock stars.Vogue magazine and Harpers Barzar featured Andre Van pier for many years in the 1980s. His small couture collections sold east and west coast at excutive stores, Andre Van Pier often spoke of the 1980s as the best time in his life he remembered the parties, the nightlife that he so much adored a time when Andre was the toast of the town. Money was no problem and the parties where endless as these where the days of excess for everyone. STUDIO 54 was the place to be and the party was non stop.

Notes on Fashion

Gross, Michael. (05/1987)

Crystal bra shown at the Omni by Andre Van Pier. ”Joan Collins has purchased this,” said Mr. Van Pier’s marketing director, Victoria Vanayerst, who also showed sequined bandeaus and halters made of bugle beads. Which one a customer b_w_carokchooses, Miss Vanayerst said, ”depends on the shape of her body.” Also on the shape of her wallet: the bra will retail for $1,400.  For those who find sequined bras a little too cheap, Mr. Van Pier also offers a 24-karat gold shawl for about $2,500, depending, Miss Vanayerst said, ”on the price of gold, of course.”

    Exactamente desde agosto del año pasado Andre van pier dejo de comunicarse con su familia en la ciudad Villavicencio, Departamento del Meta, republica de Colombia y si estaban extrañados por su silencio jamas se imaginaron que el hubiera fallecido tristemente solo.
    Lo ultimo que les informo es que le ivan a hacer un trasplante de higado y no se volvio a saber de èl.
    El nombre de su madre es SOFIA FERNANDEZ, y sus hermanos Janeth, Ricardo y Fredert Ivan y esta radicados en Villavicencio.
    En estos momentos se estan preguntando como puede hacer pàra repatriar sus restos a Colombia.

        Victoria: My name is Janet, I’m the youngest of all VanPier’s siblings. I ended up in your page because I’m looking for my brother, Andre, which we haven’t had any contact since April, 2008. Now, I read a note from your page that says Andre VanPier died, August 2008. We are concerned because, we really don’t know what happened to him. We knew he was sick, he needed a liver transplant. Andre comunicated with our mother in May 2008, and informed her about the gravity of the problem, he said that if anyhting where to happen hi lawyer was going to contact us, but up untill now, no one has had any contact.

        My husband and I are thinking of flying to NYC with a goal, of finding out about his death record and about his economic status. We really would like, if it were possible and interview with you, to discuss this out.

        You can communicate with us in Panama, +507-66160283 (GABRIEL FRANCO) or, +507-66155070 (JANET HERNANDEZ)

        Thank you,

    Just since last August Andre van pier stopped communicating with his family in the city Villavicencio, Meta Department, Republic of Colombia and whether they were puzzled by his silence never imagined that sadly had died alone.
    The last thing is that I inform you ivan to do a liver transplant and was never heard from him.
    The mother’s name is SOFIA FERNANDEZ and his brothers, Janeth , Richard and fredert ivan living in Villavicencio.
    Right now are wondering how you can do to repatriate his remains to Colombia.

    I was saddened to read about the death of Andre van pier. I met him in the early 80s when he had a boutique in Ft. Lee, New Jersey. I purchased a wonderful 2 piece top and long skirt made of the most amazing silver fabric. The top was full with dolman sleeves and the skirt was long and straight. Although I only wore it twice, it was so beautifully designed that I could not part with it. Andre was such a nice man to deal with and did everything to please his customer.
