With somber heart we have confirmed information on the passing of talented designer and creative mind Alexander McQueen. It seems the fashion world was finally starting to understand his playfully creative collections which have now been sadly taken away. We send out our support and condolences to the family.
His Brand house released this statement on behalf of the family:
“On behalf of Lee McQueen’s family, Alexander McQueen today announces the tragic news that Lee McQueen, the founder and designer of the Alexander McQueen brand, has been found dead at his home. At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated and are sharing a sense of shock and grief with Lee’s family.”
“Lee’s family has asked for privacy in order to come to terms with this terrible news and we hope the media will respect this.”
