LOS ANGELES (AP) - Bijan Pakzad, a Beverly Hills designer of ultra-luxury clothing, perfume and jewelry, has died.

His son, Nicolas Pakzad, tells the Los Angeles Times that his father suffered a stroke on Thursday and died Saturday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

The Times says family members put his age at 67 but public records list it as 71.

Pakzad, who was born in Iran, came to the U.S. in the 1970s and opened a Rodeo Drive boutique.

He boasted that his Bijan label included the most expensive menswear in the world, with suits costing thousands of dollars.

In the 1990s he teamed with NBA star Michael Jordan on a top-selling cologne.
