Alexander McQueen died

February 11, 2010

Leading British fashion designer Alexander McQueen has committed suicide. The 40 year old designer was found hanged in his appartement in London. His mother Joyce died a few days ago.

Three years ago Mc Queens close friend and fashion icon Isabella Blow, who helped kick-start his career, killed herself.

In less than 10 years McQueen became one of the most respected fashion designers in the world. In October 1996 he became chief designer at Givenchy, in 2000 he became creative director for the label Gucci. Because of his strong vision and will, his nickname in the fashion world is ”enfant terrible”.

It’s a true lost for the fashionworld, and what will his label be without him?
