Alexander McQueen (1969-2010)

like i already mentioned yesterday. i was, and still am, really devastated by the fact that Alexander McQueen commited suicide. i'm sure i can say, he was one of the most talentful designers of this century. the fashion world lost a huge talent.
who is going to surprise me with robots spraying paint on a beautiful white tube dress during a fashion show like he did in 1999? who is going to design such wonderful shoes as the armadillo shoes. please. tell me who.
i feel really sorry for the family, and this is the message they show people on McQueen's website: "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."

McQueen's death came 3 years after one of his friends, Isabella Blow, died after an overdose. Blow worked as his mentor to teach McQueen how to survive in the fashion world and helped him with creating the image he was known for.
last week, on tuesday, McQueen's mother died. being thought is that losing people, made him reach the limits. and i feel really sorry for McQueen. losing 2 of your close ones, that is really hard to handle with. Alexander McQueen, was known as one of the most important designers of these days. his craftmanship, his explicite taste and his ability to leave the public with their mouths wide open. he won a lot of prizes with all these features, under wich the title British Designer Of The Year.
in 1994 Alexander started his own label, but until 2001 he was also shining as the head designer of Givenchy. i wonder if the label still will exist after all this drama. i hope so, but it will never be the same without Alex himself.
to show people i was really devastated by losing one of the greatest designers ever, i worn this R.I.P. McQ tshirt, i made by myself, and made a little tribute page in my agenda for McQueen.after all of saying this, and sharing this with you. all i can say is, may you rest in piece Alexander. hope you'll find peace and rest at the place where you are right now. love you.
