As you all know,Alexander McQueen commited suicide last week, which threw the fashion world into turmoil, everyone who was anyone had attended his shows or worn his designs (not us mere mortals, but the fashion industry ;) Many tributes over the past week have been made for him, including Naomi Campbell's charity fashion show for Haiti, in which many models such as Kate Moss wore his designs. It was a tragedy that he took his life so suddenly, although he had apparently been suffering from depression as his mother had died the week before and his best friend had commited suicide a few years back. At least he managed to achieve so much in the time he was alive, setting up a worldwide fashion brand and becoming a true icon.
His autumn/winter 2010/11 collection will be shown in Paris Fashion Week soon, which at least is a lasting memory we can all have of him,doubtless his designs will be magnificent.
Here's looking up to you,Alexander.
