 Alexander McQueen Has Passed

A sad adieu to a major fashion force. I’ll miss not only his ability to fan flames–because being controversial isn’t that difficult, but the fact that he backed it all up with enormous talent, vision and drive. I’d like to add that he was fearless, too, but I imagine that was built into his DNA and he couldn’t live his life any other way.  The images from above are from his final women’s runway show, held in October 2009. The collection, according to press, ”was casting an apocalyptic forecast of the future ecological meltdown of the world.” In one of his final tweets, McQueen aptly stated:

“From heaven to hell and back again, life is a funny thing. Beauty can come from the most strangest of places even the most disgusting places.” A few minutes later, he posted: “Why people ignore the ugly things in life but within this they are missing the beauty that lies under the rotten fruit!!!!!!!!!!!!”

There’s a lovely written tribute from Tim Blanks on Style and here are a collection of quotes from celebs who knew him well, including Anna Wintour, Kate Moss, and Karl Lagerfeld.

  1. This is incredibly saddening. I will miss his creativity & talent. He will certainly not be forgotten. I really wish he didn’t commit suicide, but who am I to judge? May he Rest In Paradise.

    RIP MCQUEEN.
