Retail design pioneer Charles E. Broudy, who set the look for thousands of Gap, GapKids and babyGap stores in the Eighties and Nineties, died of cancer on Aug. 21 at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. He was 79.
Broudy designed everything from the store facades to the interiors and determined how the clothes were displayed, exerting enormous impact on the expansion of some of the most visible U.S. specialty chains.
