Breaking News: Alexander McQueen Commits Suicide

The Daily Mail is reporting that Alexander McQueen committed suicide. The British paper says the designer was found dead at his flat in London, and is believed to have hung himself. His mother had died a few days earlier. A source at McQueen’s office confirmed the suicide, saying, “It is a tragic loss. We are not making a comment at this time out of respect for the McQueen family.” Details of his death have not been released yet. McQueen, who was discovered by Isabella Blow, was extremely close to the fashion editor. Blow killed herself in 2007. We will update as we hear news.

This is upsetting! Although I have never really been a huge fan of McQueen, his demise is definitely a loss to the fashion industry. He made the skull scarf popular…

… and who will ever forget the 10″ heels that he sent models down the runway for his Spring/Summer 2010 collection?

With the NY Fashion Week going on, his presence will be sorely missed. Rest in peace, Alexander McQueen.
