We have lost a true fashion genius and visionary today. Alexander McQueen, one of our favourite designers, who always seemed to amaze us with every show he had, was found dead today.
McQueen, a friend of the great Isabella Blow who discovered him by purchasing his entire graduate collection for $5000 and paying it off in weekly $100 installments, was known for his over the top designs. Mcqueen was in the news recently due to his budding friendship with Lady Gaga, who wore many of his designs in her music videos and on stage.
Alexander Mcqueen will be missed and his designs will be treasured for a very long time.
