RIP Alexander McQueen

It’s been an afternoon of shock and sorrow as the news that Alexander McQueen has been found dead at at an address in Green Street, Central London filters through the grapevine.

His death is not being treated as suspicious.

The British fashion designer, known for his outrageous and extraordinary designs, and who won the British Designer of the Year four times between 1996 and 2003, was just 40 years old.

On 3 February, McQueen wrote on his Twitter page that his mother Joyce had passed away the day before, adding: “RIP mumxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.”

Four days later he wrote that he had had an “awful week” but said “friends have been great”, adding: “now i have to some how pull myself together”.

His family said in a statement: ‘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.’

Our sympathy goes out to his family.
