Long Live McQueen!

The Fashion world mourns the passing of its daring luminary - Alexander McQueen

Born in London's East End, the son of a cabbie and lovingly raised by a mother whose death he could not bear. Lee Alexander McQueen took his life just days after his Mother's passing.


"We are devastated to learn of the death of Alexander 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. His passing marks an insurmountable loss."
- Anna Wintour


“He was a young genius who crossed between Couture and Punk Rock with reverence. He will be missed by all.” —Tommy Hilfiger, Designer

His work was always known to be extraordinary and avant-garde.

Alexander McQueen personally worked on Bjork's album cover Homogenic and even worked as director in one of her music videos.

His fashion shows were always an eclectic mix of technology and performance art.
