Marion Greenberg, his public representative, confirmed the news but the cause of death has yet to be revealed.

Friend and former employer Miguel Adrover said Hidalgo had been living in a homeless shelter while waiting to qualify for subsidized housing, WWD report.

Adrover added that lately it’s been difficult to approach the designer.

“I know he’s not feeling well. It was really hard to get in touch with him,” Adrover told WWE.

“I would say to him all the time, ‘Peter, love, you should move back to Santo Domingo, because you have your family.’ Also, you know what New York is like. If you don’t have money, it’s really a difficult city to survive. He’s also not young. I was exhausted.”

Hidalgo won the Fashion Group International “Rising Star” award in 2010.

In addition to dressing Kanye West in the past, Hidalgo also dressed Usher, who wore his suit while on the 2011 MTV Music Video.

Hidalgo also dressed Nicki Minaj during the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards opening performance.
