Alexander McQueen & Isabella Blow

The legendary and outrageously creative fashion designer, Alexander McQueen was confirmed dead today at the age of 40. He was found dead in his London home after committing suicide. The Guardian reported,

His death comes just days before the start of London fashion week and a month before he was to unveil his new collection at Paris fashion week. His family asked for privacy to come to terms with the death of McQueen, also known as Lee. His company, Alexander McQueen, issued a statement saying: “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.”

The devastating news comes on the heels of his mother passing away last week and just three years after his good friend Isabella Blow committed suicide. R.I.P. Alexander McQueen. You will be greatlyand terribly missed…

Alexander McQueen & his beloved mother, Joyce McQueen
