MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Celebrity makeup artist Fanny Serrano dies at 74 on Tuesday night, May 10.
Designer loyalists, who made memorable fashion and makeup styles, suffered from a massive stroke in March 2021 and went on life support.
After two months since his illness, his close friend from showbiz, Megastar Sharon Cuneta, shared on her Instagram account on May 2 an update about the health condition of Fanny, popularly known as “Tita Fanny.” Unfortunately, after Sharon’s update, his health deteriorated further.
Fashion designer and vice president for External Affairs of Designers Circle Philippines Dave Ocampo took to Facebook on May 11, saying his goodbye to the artist alongside his gratitude for the Serano’s goodness.
According to ABS-CBN News, Fanny’s daughter Patpat Miranda shared on Tuesday about the peaceful passing of her father from 8:45 to 9:00 PM at his residence at Morato, Quezon City.
She also shared that their prayers have been heard to keep their father away from pain and struggle. Moreover, she thanked the people who expressed their condolences and prayers, saying she is thankful for everyone’s tribute to her late father.
Also known as Felix Fausto Jr., Serrano built a phenomenal name in the industry of hair and fashion, starting from the late 1970s. He defined beauty in show business through his numerous muses. Among those muses includes Lorna Tolentino, Amy Austria, and Sharon Cuneta.
The family members have yet to announce their plans to finalize Fanny’s funeral arrangements.
