Commenting tonight on Scaasi, Streisand said: "I was very saddened to hear of Arnold Scaasi's passing. Arnold was a wonderful designer who knew how to combine fantasy and craftsmanship. He made many fabulous outfits for me over the years and unfortunately, only one of them stole the headlines."
Notably, Scaasi designed some of Streisand's costumes for the film adaptation of the musical ON A CLEAR DAY YOU CAN SEE FOREVER.
