It’s been exactly 10 months since Alexander McQueen’s body was found hanged at his home in London. A sad, sad event that left the whole fashion and entertainment industry mourning for this great loss. Lee Alexander McQueen, without question was a genius that revolutionized fashion in such a daring and ferocious manner. Clearly, with his technically and aesthetically creative works; McQueen will eternally be remembered!
A Few Things About Lee:
He was awarded “British Designer of the Year” four times!
He was the creative Director of GUCCI.
He was the head designer of GIVENCHY from 1996-2001.
He was discovered by Isabella Blow who also committed suicide in 2007.
His patrons includes Lady Gaga, Camilla Belle, Katie Holmes and Rihanna to name a few.
His creations will be immortalized next year at the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art that will stage Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.
He brought a uniquely British sense of daring and aesthetic fearlessness to the global stage of fashion. In such a short career, Alexander McQueen’s influence was astonishing – from street style, to music culture and the world’s museums. His passing marks an insurmountable loss. – Anna Wintour
Local magazine, PREVIEW also paid their tribute on their 15th anniversary issue last June with model Georgina Wilson wearing recreations of McQueen’s most iconic looks.
