Alexander McQueen has committed suicide

Readers this is a sad day for the fashion industry. Fashion giant, and one of my personal favorite designers Alexander McQueen has committed suicide. McQueen age 40, was found hanging in his London flat this morning. McQueen's mother died last week and McQueen was racked by grief over the loss.

The fashion world will forever morn the loss of his genius, and ability to create stunning shows based on design genius, technology and the appeal of performance.

Here are some of McQueen's stunning and most talked about designs:

And this piece is my all time favorite Alexander McQueen design (it is from the Paris shows last spring)

Such a sad and tragic loss!

It hurts my heart to hear that. What an incredible designer.

And I'm not sure if you got my e-mail in reply to your comment, but my heart and my prayers go out to you, sweet friend.
