Rest in peace, Alexander McQueen. ♥
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I literally JUST saw this on CNN and almost cried. I read the article and freaaaaaaked out. That's so sad. OMG. He was onnly 40. And he was amazing. And I love him. And oh no. :(
On his website it read:
"ON BEHALF OF LEE MCQUEEN'S FAMILY, ALEXANDER MCQUEEN TODAY ANNOUNCES THE TRAGIC NEWS THAT LEE MCQUEEN, THE FOUNDER AND DESIGNER OF THE ALEXANDER MCQUEEN BRAND HAS BEEN FOUND DEAD AT HIS HOME. AT THIS STAGE IT IS INAPPROPRIATE TO COMMENT ON THIS TRAGIC NEWS BEYOND SAYING THAT WE ARE DEVASTATED AND ARE SHARING A SENSE OF SHOCK AND GRIEF WITH LEE'S FAMILY."
It then went on to say:
"LEE'S FAMILY HAS ASKED FOR PRIVACY IN ORDER TO COME TO TERMS WITH THIS TERRIBLE NEWS AND WE HOPE THE MEDIA WILL RESPECT THIS."
He was too amazing to die. :(This is so sad. Like, I don't know what to say.
I remember when I first got into fashion, his runway shows were the first ones I saw and it's one of the main reasons I got into it. His unique pieces were always catching my attention and everytime fashion week rolled around, I would always be sure to look at his show as soon as possible. I can honestly say that he is one of my favourite designers and he will be greatly missed. He wasn't afraid to do what he wanted to do an I have a lot of respect for him for doing that. My deepest condolences go out to his friends and family.
