A Vogue model Tatjana Patitz, who gained enormous popularity in the 1980s and 1990s and was featured on hundreds of fashion magazine covers throughout a 40-year career, has passed away. She was 56 years old.
Her New York agent at the Model CoOp, Corinne Nicolas, confirmed Patitz’s passing in Santa Barbara, California. With no further information, Nicolas claimed that disease was the root of the problem.
Patitz, who was from Germany, educated in Sweden, and subsequently settled in California, was regarded as one of the “original” supermodels, joining Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, and Cindy Crawford in the Michael video.
She was an ideal of fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh, whose 1988 image “White Shirts: Six Supermodels, Malibu” and the 1990 cover of British Vogue featured her natural beauty and inspired Michael to use the group in his lip-syncing video, according to Vogue.
According to Anna Wintour, the magazine’s international editorial director, Patitz was “always been the European emblem of elegance when Romy Schneider met Monica Vitti.”
She Was Secretive
She was more secretive, mature, and unreachable than her contemporaries, and it had its charm because she was much less apparent.
Patitz stated that the heyday of fashion models was over an interview from 2006.
She was mentioned in the Prestige Hong Kong magazine, saying, “There was a true era, and the reason that occurred was because glamour was introduced into it.”
“Celebrities and actresses are now in charge, while models are fully in the backseat.”
She also mentioned how physically fit the models of her time were.
Women were in good health, not these skinny little models whose names are no longer known, according to Patitz.
