Alexander McQueen

The world of fashion has lost one of its most interesting and creative voices.

Fashion designer Alexander McQueen has died at the age of 40.

Alexander McQueenFeted by the fashion industry and crowned British Designer Of The Year a record four times, his reputation was nevertheless as the incorrigible bad boy of fashion.

He claimed to have once sewn the words “I am a cunt” into the sleeve of a jacket meant for the Prince of Wales. True story or not, he’s still a legend.

McQueen was found dead in his London apartment, of a suspected suicide, just nine days after the death of his mother.

Alexander McQueen, we salute you.
