London Tears

Devastating news. 
Alexander Mcqueen was found dead this morning in his London home--reports are saying suicide was the cause..
London & the Fashion Universe has lost an iconic piece of their hearts today..

"At one level he was a master of the fantastic, creating astounding fashion shows that mixed design, technology and performance and on another he was a modern-day genius whose gothic aesthetic was adopted by women the world over." -Alexander Shulman: editor of British Vogue

R.I.P my fellow will be greatly missed by all who loved you & your fabulous work.

How do you all feel about this loss? Were you as shocked as I? What was your favorite part of his designs?

  1. i felt strangley emotional about this...the story of how he died is sad enough to be able bare...but the fact that he was 'one of us'. he wasn't an overrated celebrity, he was unique...every design he produced was unique, something to remind me this is person who is passionate about his work and profession...and wasn't in it for the short run of fashion. His death reminds us...he's still human.

  2. his work was amazing and everything you just said is 100% perfect. I will truly miss him in the fashion industry.
