December 28, 1987

PARIS (AP) _ Hebe Dorsey, fashion editor of the International Herald Tribune for nearly two decades, has died of cancer, the newspaper said Monday. She was 62.

Mrs. Dorsey, also a writer for Vogue magazine, The New York Times and other publications, died Sunday at the American Hospital of Paris.

During her long illness, she continued to write the witty and irreverent articles that made her an influence in the fashion world. Her reporting made Mrs. Dorsey a fashion power in Europe, Asia and the United States.

She contributed a monthly column to the French Vogue magazine and in 1986 published a book titled ″The Belle Epoque in the Paris Herald.″ Mrs. Dorsey was a contributor to the Herald Tribune before she joined the staff in 1970.

″It’s a big void,″ said Paris designer Christian Lacroix. ″We’ll miss her sharpness, her acute sense of analysis, as well as her style.″

In New York, designer Bill Blass called her ″wonderful and original.″

She is survived by two children. Services will be held Wednesday at the Cimetiere Parisien de Pantin.
