I first heard it on the radio on the way to school.
“British fashion designer Alexander McQueen was found dead in his home…”
I gasped. Out loud.
What an amazing man; it’s sad that he had so much capability yet had reason to take his own life…
Here are just some of the amazing moments:
Spring 2008 – Dedicated to Isabella, his muse, who also committed suicide.
And let’s not forget the feather cocoon, a gilded bodysuit and cage-like bustier, some more unusual pieces that cemented McQueen’s name into the fashion hall-of-fame.
Of course, the runway shows will go on in New York, Milan and Paris over the next few weeks. But they really won’t be the same without him.
