Breaking News: Alexander McQueen commits suicide

We don’t have much information on this story as yet, but staff at Alexander McQueen’s office confirmed this afternoon that the designer has been found dead, having apparently committed suicide.

We’re in shock. What tragic news, and what a terrible loss for both the fashion world, and, it goes without saying, his family and friends.

Mr McQueen, you will be sadly missed.

    I couldn’t believe it when I heard it. I’ll admit, I thought a lot of his stuff was a bit to out-there and self-indulgent, but he really was a gifted designer.

    thefashionspot forum says that his next collection is or at least was scheduled for 9th of March in Paris. Here’s hoping that his team can pull it off to present his final collection.
    His legacy will live on. May he rest in peace.
