Considered an American Revolutionary, he changed the way the world considered Los Angeles style.
With his wife Betty Endo at his side, Fred autographed his new book and reminisced with guests about the days when we would all shop his luxury boutique on Rodeo Drive and enjoyed having a glass of champagne at his signature bar in the store which felt like home for many of us.
