Fashion legend Pierre Cardin hospitalised
French fashion legend Pierre Cardin was briefly hospitalised Sunday after being taken ill in a Paris airport departure lounge, his office said.
He was taken by ambulance to the American Hospital in the Paris suburbs where he was examined and quickly discharged.
High blood pressure led to a two-day hospital stay for Cardin in May. He was also briefly hospitalised this year for a fracture of his shoulder-blade after falling on stairs.
Cardin, who set up his couture house in 1949, was last year ranked 71st on a list of France's wealthiest people released by Challenges magazine, with an estimated wealth of 500 million euros.AFP/Expatica
