This comes as a complete shock.... Alexander McQueen was discovered dead today after taking his own life.
" At one level, he was a master of the fantastic, creating astounding fashion shows that mixed design, technology and performance and on another he was a modern-day genius"
- Vogue Editor, Alexandra Shulman
"The industry was left reeling after the 40-year-old's suicide this morning, which comes just days after the death of his beloved mother, Joyce. It is also just three years since his close friend, style guru Isabella Blow - who plucked him from obscurity and helped him become a star - killed herself."
I cannot image runway without his works... it is such a loss! I was shocked t0 read the news today. McQueen was a creative genius who is irreplaceable... and although his life was cut short, his works will live on forever. He will never be forgotten, my thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends!
