Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen was found dead in his London home.'s Tim Blanks expressed the industry and the world's emotions perfectly...

 "The news that Alexander McQueen has killed himself is particularly devastating because it always felt to me like he’d be the last man standing. He was restless, but so pragmatic with it I assumed he had what it took to endure the extreme situations he placed himself in. He was also an arch romantic with a pessimistic streak. It produced some of the most beautiful, shocking images in the history of fashion, but it’s a state of mind that can lead to endless disappointments.... For everyone left behind, there will eventually be consolation, however scant right now, in a body of work whose power will never die."

*A look back on his influential life to come soon*
