THE heiress of the Reiss clothing empire has died suddenly, it has been reported.

Debra Reiss (34), the daughter of David Reiss (72), had been suffering from a long term illness.

It is understood that her unborn child also passed away, according to the Daily Mail.

Ms Reiss gave birth to a daughter, Scarlett, last year.

She had been working for the business as a brand director in Los Angeles in the time before her death.

Her father David turned the company into a worldwide company, favoured by Kate Middleton among others.

He took over his father’s East End outfitters in 1971.

Sales at the company skyrocketed after Kate Middleton wore a cream silk dress made by them in her official engagement portrait in 2011.

A spokesperson told the Mail:

“The thoughts of everyone at Reiss are with David and his family'.
