Alexander McQueen, Iconoclastic Fashion Designer, Dead at 40

Alexander McQueen, known for his macabre symbols and dramatic flair was found dead in his London home on Thursday.  His death is believed to be a suicide.

The extraordinarily talented designer was set to show this week during New York’s Fashion Week.When he burst onto the fashion scene in the early 90’s he was unfashionably unkempt and willfully so. In 2001, Gucci bought 51 percent of his company and gave him financial stability and a penchant to continue to shock the world of fashion with his grotesque but somehow enchantingly beautiful designs and theatrical presentations.  His work attracted the Queen of England and Lady GaGa  premiered her single “Bad Romance” at his Spring show.

The world has lost a creative that will be hard to replace. He will be missed.

R.I.P. Alexander McQeen!
