This morning British fashion designer Alexander McQueen, who has had an integral hand in sculpting our culture, was found hanging in his London apartment, an apparent suicide. He was only 40 years old, and even though his life was short, his impact was great.
Sarah Jessica Parker, Rihanna, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Dita von Teese, Naomi Campbell, these ladies are all known for their signature styles that could be outrageous at times, and Alexander McQueen’s couture creations helped cement these pop icons in our minds.
Here’s a video from a rousing Alexander McQueen fashion show:
