Gloria Sachs, a fashion designer who combined her love of textile design with her fashions, died in her sleep Monday at her New York apartment. She was 85.
As owner of her own company, Gloria Sachs Designs Ltd., Sachs was well known for her luxurious sportswear using silks, cashmeres and printed paisley fabrics. She worked closely with firms such as Ratti and Etro in producing the silks for her collections and owned her own knitting mill in Ireland for making cashmere sweaters.
