There’s been another sad death in the home shopping world. Handbag designer Carlos Falchi, an HSN vendor, died last Friday.

The talented designer appeared on-air recently on the home shopping network and looked spry and fit.

We thought that HSN mourned his demise in a classy way. On the web page for his HSN “Chi by Falchi” line, HSN had a photo of him that said, 1944-2015,
“Thank you for your passion, creativity and artistic spirit.”

There was also a video.

One of Falchi’s daughters also posted a moving message on Facebook,

“I just want to say a big Thank You to all of my friends for your kindness and outpouring of support. It brings me comfort to see just how many lives my Dad has touched, I am so grateful to all of you for contacting me and offering kind words. It means so much to me and my family. I wish I could give each and every one of you a big Carlos Falchi hug but please know we are thinking of you. All our love, Kate Falchi, Juliet Falchi and Missy.”

RIP Carlos.
