RIP Alexander McQueen

12Feb10

The Fashion World was left in shock yesterday following the sad news that british fashion designer, Alexander McQueen, had died aged just 40 years old and only weeks before his Autumn Winter collection was to make its catwalk debut at Paris Fashion Week. It was only a few months back that I remember watching his SS10 show, screened live, in complete awe at his talent. The show was haunting and ethereal, perhaps even more so now. A sad twist in the tale is the fact that his beloved mother had passed away only a few days earlier, and his heartbreak over this was apparent in his Twitter updates. Ironically it was through Twitter that I first heard about his death as the news spread like wildfire and it was quickly apparent that this was not a hoax. RIP Alexander (Lee) McQueen, a true star in the British Fashion Industry – you will be sorely missed.
