RIP: The Fashion World Mourns the Loss of McQueen
It is a sad day for the fashion industry who mourns the loss of one of its most creative and avant guard designers, Alexander McQueen. According to the Associated Press, McQueen was found in his home today, dead at the age of 40. Tim Blanks's post on Style.com's Style File Blog claims that the designer took his own life.
McQueen's designs were always incredibly creative and innovative as well as sexy and impeccably well tailored. His last collection which featured the infamous "armadillo heels" was the talk of the fashion set, because of it's combination of conceptual clothing and technology. His shows were extravagant spectacles and were much anticipated during Paris Fashion Week. It is so sad that the world has lost such a singular voice in fashion. At least it had the chance to witness his talent for a time, how ever short it was. If you are unfamiliar with the genius of McQueen's collections click here.
