Italia Vogue editor Franca Sozzani cause of death at age 66

Legendary Vogue Italia editor passing away has led to fans wondering how Franca Sozzani died and her cause of death.Apparently the Italian fashion icon  had been battling a year long illness which finally led to her passing on.Her friend Jonathan Newhouse, chairman and chief executive of Condé Nast broke the news on Thursday.
"This is the saddest news I have ever had to report to you,"  "Franca Sozzani, the Editor of Italian Vogue for 28 years, died today in Milan after a year-long illness with her son
Francesco by her side."
Her son, Francesco Carrozzini, recently filmed a documentary about his mother. Entitled Franca: Chaos and Creation, the footage premiered at the 2016 Venice Film Festival. 
Under her direction, Italian Vogue became one of the most boundary-pushing editions of the international publication. Though she will perhaps be best-remembered for her collaborations with photographer Steven Meisel, she used the pages of the magazine to spark often-controversial conversations about age, race and size/body image. 

She will also be remembered as the lady who gave Kim Kardashian her first Vogue appearance.That was a highly controversial moment and just highlights the fact that she was her own woman who was not afraid to break bounds or approach controversial decisions.
Among her most treasured moments was her role where she served as Ambassador to Fashion for the United Nations
She will be remembered as one of the greatest Editors who ever made a magazine,she was by far the most talented, influential and important person within the Condé Nast International organisation.
