Alexander McQueen Commits Suicide

Alexander McQueen Commits Suicide

British fashion designer Alexander McQueen has died, his company has said.

McQueen, 40, was found dead at his London home on Thursday morning (February 11). UK’s Daily Mail is reporting that McQueen committed suicide as he was found hanging in his apartment in the Green Park area.

A statement from his family was released: “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. 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.”

This is a big blow to the fashion community as he truly was a revolutionary designer. Is it a coincidence that this happened at the start of NY Fashion Week? One of his contemporary lines, McQ, was set to be shown this afternoon. McQueen also was scheduled to show his new designer collection at Paris Fashion Week on March 9.

Our deepest condolences go out to McQueen‘s family and friends.
