It saddens me to learn that today (LEE) ALEXANDER MCQUEEN, one of Britain's most well-known and prolific fashion designers has passed away. It is undoubtedly a shock to anyone familiar with the work of the "enfant terrible" of fashion.
Alexandra Shulman, editor of British Vogue puts it pretty succintly: "His brilliant imagination knew no bounds as he conjured up collection after collection of extraordinary designs. His death is the hugest loss to anyone who knew him and for very many who didn't."
What's for sure is that McQueen will be greatly missed, but his fashion legacy will live on..
