Another Icon Lost: Alexander McQueen
Legendary fashion designer, Alexander McQueen was found dead in his apartment today. It has been said he took his own life due to his mother's death a couple of days ago. This hasn't been confirmed.I'm honestly shocked and can't believe it because he was supposed to show his latest collection at Fashion Week. I'm pretty sure there will be an amazing tribute
His company issued a statement:
"On behalf of Lee McQueen's family, Alexander McQueen today announces the tragic news that Lee McQueen, the founder and designer of the Alexander McQueen brand, has been found dead at his home. At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated and are sharing a sense of shock and grief with Lee's family."
"Lee's family has asked for privacy in order to come to terms with this terrible news and we hope the media will respect this."
