Fashion designer Alfred Fiandaca, 72, whose creations for Ann Romney were highlighted when she wore them on the campaign trail last fall, died of complications from a stroke on Saturday morning.
Fiandaca, who attended the Fashion Institute of Technology and the former Traphagen School of Fashion, launched his first, self-named collection in 1960. In 1961, he opened an Alfred Fiandaca shop on Maverick Street in Boston; it moved to Newbury Street two years later and to Albany Street in 2009. Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel and Saks Fifth Avenue also carried his clothes.
