McClintock “died peacefully sleeping at home” on Feb. 16, according to the obituary.

McClintock was best known for her dresses, especially for bridal and graduation dance designs “based on the ideal of romance and beauty,” wrote Steve Rubenstein of the Chronicle. “Her name became synonymous with events made in a woman’s life … baptism, prom, graduation, engagement and wedding,” she writes.

The website says the “romance ideal” infuses the Jessica McClintock brand. “Jessica was one of the first adopters of the concept of empowering young women and women of all ages to live their best lives with confidence,” she says.

McClintock survives his son Scott and will be buried with his family in Presque Isle, Maine. According to the Chronicle obituary, a celebration of his life is scheduled for later this year in San Francisco.
