A Devastation in the Fashion World

February 13, 2010

It is with great sadness to share with you all the death of Lee Alexander McQueen. A truly remarkable designer and clearly ahead of the entire fashion world, McQueen brought upon unique creativity that made the British fashion industry thrive. Known for his elaborate and dramatic fashion shows, McQueen offered a refreshing and new outlook to fashion which quickly grabbed the eye of celebrities and fashion critics everywhere.

According to an article from Yahoo News, Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour called McQueen “one of the greatest talents of his generation.”

“He brought a uniquely British sense of daring and aesthetic fearlessness to the global stage of fashion. In such a short career, Alexander McQueen’s influence was astonishing — from street style, to music culture and the world’s museums,” she said in a statement. “His passing marks an insurmountable loss.”

Alexander McQueen was found dead on Thursday, Feb. 11 in his apartment in London.

He will be sorely missed and may his brilliance in fashion continue to walk the runways.

Rest in peace, Alexander McQueen.
