Alexander McQueen Dead: Fashion Designer Commits Suicide At Age 40

11Feb10
Fashion designer Alexander McQueen has taken his own life at age 40. His office confirmed his death, saying: ‘It is a tragic loss. We are not making a comment at this time out of respect for the McQueen family.’ He was found at his home in London.

McQueen’s secondary line, McQ, was to be presented TODAY as part of New York Fashion Week. KCD, the PR company handling the show, says the presentation is canceled.

This is such a tragic loss as Alexander McQueen was internationally recognized as one of the most innovative and leading fashion designers in the world. His artistry spanned beyond the runway and challenged the fashion industry in many ways. For me personally, when I saw his SS’10 collection, I was truly inspired, and in some weird way, fashion and art and media made sense to me. His creativity has most definitely influenced our mandate of always daring to be different when envisioning projects and he will be truly missed.
