NEW YORK — A memorial service for Zack Carr 3rd, who was creative director at Calvin Klein, has been set for Thursday at 4 p.m. at St. Thomas Church, One West 53rd Street, in Manhattan.
Carr, who was 55, worked at Calvin Klein for close to three decades and also designed under his own label from 1984 to 1988. He died Dec. 21 in New York of cancer.
Carr was first a student of interior design and architecture at the University of Texas, where he earned a B.A. in fine arts in 1969. He then went on to attend Parsons School of Design for three years beginning in 1970, where he was first introduced to Calvin Klein.
Carr began his career working for B. Altman & Co. and Donald Brooks. He joined Klein in the early Seventies, and with the exception of the years when he designed under the Zack Carr Creation label, remained with Calvin Klein until his death.
He is survived by two brothers, George and Peter.
