Incredibly sad news. It’s been reported that British fashion designer and icon Alexander McQueen has committed suicide…

British fashion designer Alexander McQueen has been found dead after taking his own life. The 40-year-old committed suicide just three years after his close friend, Isabella Blow – who plucked him from obscurity and helped him become a star – killed herself. A source at McQueen’s office this afternoon confirmed his death, saying: ‘It is a tragic loss. We are not making a comment at this time out of respect for the McQueen family.’ Read more.

We’re not a fashion blog, but we are fans of McQueen. My fashion friends (aka the homie Zayns) educated me on his greatness and ever since, I’ve been a fan from a far. This really is sad news. We don’t know anything else aside from the grim facts but it always makes you wonder, a person who so seemingly has everything – successful, wealthy, influential – living the dream, but yet still battling the demons we all do.

Update: Sky News reports McQueen’s mother died on February 3rd.

Peace & Love

God bless & Keep Alexander McQueen. May he get to the next level of his journey swiftly and enveloped in the white light of Christ. Its rough that he left so young. It would have been great if he could have stuck around many decades more to be a grand ‘ol gentleman of fashion like Yves St Laurent. McQueen’s vision and perspective were sharp, vibrant, sexy & fresh. Personally, he seemed to have a clean, gentle vibe. Prayers and good thoughts to his family, friends, clients and other McQueen fans & followers.
