In a tragic end to an incredible life, Alexander McQueen was found dead in his home from apparant suicide early Thursday morning. We were all in complete shock to hear about the loss of such a legend; the fashion industry will truly never be the same.
“Alexander McQueen challenged and expanded our understanding of fashion beyond utility to a conceptual expression of culture, politics, and identity. He was a provocateur and a raconteur who told stories through his clothes – stories that might draw from the past or other cultures, but were relevant to the here and now. He had the mind of a poet and the heart of an artist. He was a true romantic, in the Byronic sense of the word, who channeled the sublime.”
