Costume designer to the stars dies

The costumer passed away on Monday (10Oct11), reports People.com.

Aghayan was born in Tehran, Iran and moved to Los Angeles as a teenager to attend high school. He discovered his passion for design after briefly dabbling in acting, producing and directing and was instrumental in convincing officials at the Television Academy to establish a Costume Design category at the Emmy Awards.

He was honoured with the inaugural Emmy for Costume Design in 1967 for his work on Alice Through the Looking Glass and went on to land nominations for his dress work in 1969's Gaily Gaily, Diana Ross' Lady Sings the Blues (1972), and Barbra Streisand's Funny Lady (1975).
