McQueen, the iconic British fashion designer, has passed away.
The news that Alexander McQueen has committed suicide has shocked the fashion industry.
The iconic British designer, who last year created a cheap chic collection for Target including his famous skull-printed scarves and tough-chic zippered jackets, was one of the most creative, brilliant forces in the industry.
McQueen, who previously designed for Givenchy and was named the CFDA's International Designer of the Year, was the creative chief at his namesake brand that he launched in the 1990s and sold to Gucci Group in 2000.
A fashion editor and celebrity favorite, McQueen, who early on in his career was dubbed "l'enfant terrible" for his controversial looks, was set to present his collection during Paris Fashion Week. He was 40.
Vogue’s editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley perhaps summed up the designer's influence best in the WSJ: "It is a great loss. It’s a tragedy for the fashion world,” Talley said. “He was truly an innovator and a master.”
Adding: “It’s just an extraordinary loss for all of us and a shock to the fashion world. [McQueen] had incredible talents and gifts and at the same time, he was a great poet. There are very few poets left.”
While McQueen's runway shows were known for their dark, romantic and provocative nature, the Kate Moss hologram, in which a hologram of the model floats above the runway like a ghost, keeps coming to mind. Watch it here. No one will ever know what demons plagued the designer, causing him to take his life, but he touched the world with so much pure beauty, he will never be forgotton.
Rest in peace Alexander. You will be missed.
