Video: The Genius Of Alexander McQueen Dies
He was brilliant and unique, and his creations always stood out for their originality and theatrical temperament. Today, the controversial 40-year-old English designer was found dead at his London home days after the deep sadness he had felt over his mother's death on February 2 was revealed online.
Although there are indications that it could have been a suicide, neither the English police nor its advertising agent have confirmed it. The English newspaper The Sun quoted an anonymous source on its website saying that an ambulance had been called to the designer's house at 10am and that he had been found hanged.
Today fashion loses one of its most innovative and original designers. His clothes always had a dramatic element and his creations raised the name of the English in the fashion world. Among his most devoted fans were luminaries such as Madonna, Lady Gaga, Naomi Campbell, and Sandra Bullock. Successes tackled it. He was awarded the British Best Designer award four times, and in 2003 Queen Elizabeth II made him Commander of the Birtish Empire for his leadership in fashion.
Today in New York, McQueen's new clothing line called McQ was to be launched as part of the opening of Fashion Week. Beyond his death, it is clear that his brilliant imagination and creative spirit will make his influence on fashion last through the years and continue to inspire other young designers, as up to now.
