Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen (16 March 1969 – 11 February 2010)

It is with great sadness that I am reporting to you the untimely death of Alexander McQueen, one of the greatest British Fashion Designers ever.

Alexander McQueen was known as Lee to his family, as that was his first name. He named the brand after his middle name, Alexander.

Alexander McQueen was found dead at his flat in Mayfair, just days after the death of his beloved mother. He is thought to have committed suicide.

His family have issued this 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.”

Many celebrities, models and fashion editors around the world have paid tribute to McQueen.

Alexandra Shulman, the editor of Vogue, said: “Lee McQueen influenced a whole generation of designers. His brilliant imagination knew no bounds as he conjured up collection after collection of extraordinary designs.

“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. His death is the hugest loss to anyone who knew him and for very many who didn’t.”

Victoria Beckham, who if often seen wearing Alexander McQueen designs, said: “McQueen was a master of fashion, creative genius and an inspiration.

“Today the fashion industry has lost a true great. An icon of all time. He made all he touched beautiful and will be desperately missed.

“My heart is very much with his family and friends at this very sad time.”

Alexander McQueen was discovered by his mentor Isabella Blow, the former fashion editor of Tatler, who bought all of Alexander McQueen’s graduate fashion collection for £5,000. Isabella killer herself in 2007 after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer. McQueen was gutted by her death.

In 2003, Alexander McQueen was awarded the CBE. He also won British designer of the year four times and the International Designer of the Year at the Council of Fashion Designer Awards.

Goodbye, Alexander McQueen. I will miss your fabulous skull clutches and your Faithful Totes.
