Patitz’s representative confirmed the tragic news and cause of death to several publications, including Women’s Wear Daily and Vogue.

“Tatjana was always the European symbol of chic, like Romy Schneider-meets-Monica Vitti,” Anna Wintour, the fashion bible’s editor-in-chief, wrote in a Vogue obituary.


“She was much less visible than her peers — more mysterious, more mature, more unattainable — and that had its own allure.”


Patitz has walked the runway for many top fashion houses, including Chanel, Vivienne Westwood, Alaa, and Helmut Lang. Her most recent catwalk appearance was in 2019, when she walked the runway for Etro.


Patitz rose to prominence in the 1980s and 1990s as one of the original supermodels.
