COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) - Fashion icon Margit Brandt, whose simple cuts and 1960s miniskirts marked one of the first international breakthroughs for Danish designs, has died. She was 66.

Margit Brandt brand manager Maria Stubben told The Associated Press Monday that the Denmark-born designer died earlier in the day following a long fight against lung disease.

Brandt presented the first collection of her brand B-age in 1965. The short and close-fitted garments stood out from other designs of the time and B-age stores were quickly opened in Paris, Barcelona, Tokyo, San Francisco, New York and London.

The designer is survived by her husband Erik Brandt and their two daughters, Emilie and Julie.

Funeral arrangements weren't immediately known.
