Shock: Elsa Serrano died charred when her apartment caught fire

A fire destroyed the apartment where the renowned clothing designer Elsa Serrano resided. City Firefighters and Federal Police personnel found a charred body of a woman who could not yet be identified, but the family has already confirmed the death of the designer. Many celebrities fired her in Twitter after knowing the tragic news.

While awaiting the results of the fingerprints, the journalist Javier Díaz assured the body is that of the famous dressmaker. At the same time, Paparazzi magazine reported that Belén Serrano, the designer’s daughter, confirmed her death with a message to a member of the production of the Cut and Dress cycle, where her mother participated earlier this year.

The dialogue on WhatsApp began at dawn, after learning about the tragic fire on the third floor of the building located in Maipú 86, in the Retiro neighborhood of Buenos Aires. “Mom passed away,” Belén answered at 1:18 in the morning, after being consulted about the designer’s situation. It was then that several celebrities began to fire her on social networks: Benito Fernández, Jose María Muscari and Laurita Fernández were the first to do so.


A video of the fire circulated on social networks in which the large flames that came out of the windows of the apartment are observed. When the neighbors noticed the black smoke and the strong smell of burning coming from the third floor, they made a complaint to 911. At the end of the night, the firefighters were still in the place carrying out the pertinent expert reports to determine the causes of the fire.

According to a publication by Infobae, a medical examiner determined the causes of death of the victim: burns in the upper parts and asphyxia.


Elsa Serrano reached the peak of her career in the 1990s when she dressed Zulema Yoma and Zulemita Menem, in the political environment, and Claudia Villafañe, Mirtha Legrand and Susana Giménez, among other personalities of the show.

Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic in Argentina, the 73-year-old woman was sheltering in her home, the apartment that caught fire last night in the City of Buenos Aires.
