“Alexander McQueen, the British fashion designer known for producing some of the most controversial collections of the last two decades, was found dead Thursday morning at his apartment in London, according to Ed Filipowski, a partner in the public relations firm KCD. Mr. McQueen was 40.
The cause was apparently suicide, though Mr. Filipowski said Mr. McQueen’s family had not yet made a statement about the cause.” (source: New York Times)
Rest in peace, Mr. McQueen. The fashion world won’t be the same without you.
