British fashion designer, Alexander McQueen, was found dead in his London home this morning (Feb 11, 2010). Although the cause of death has not been officially reported, news has been widely spread that he committed suicide due to the sadness of his mother’s passing on February 2, 2010.
I am deeply saddened by the loss of this creative genius. His work was beautifully unique, and his shows were art. Today is the start of New York Fashion Week, and a devastating one at that. The whole fashion community is mourning the loss of this iconic designer. McQueen was scheduled to show his new collection in Paris on March 9th.
Rest in Peace Lee Alexander McQueen
