40-year old designer and fashion icon, Alexander McQueen, was found dead this morning in a London flat. Authorities believe he committed suicide by hanging. This tragedy comes just days after the death of McQueen’s mother, Joyce.
McQueen was the genius behind the looks of the most fashion forward celebrities like Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Sarah Jessica Parker. His creativity and edge influenced a generation of stylists.
R&B Artist, Que (formerly of Day 26) recently praised McQueen’s designs at the Gillette Fusion Men of Style event in Washington, DC.
