Iconic British designer Lee McQueen, founder of Alexander McQueen has passed away, found dead in his home on Thursday. I awoke to these news with shock as did most of his admirers and fashion lovers around the world. McQueen’s wild and exuberant designs defined innovation in the industry while his runway sets, always dream-like and out of this world, brought performance back into the shows.
He was truly inspirational and I hope his vision and his work continues to challenge and inspire young artists. Certainly his 2010 collection of underwater alien-esque life forms left everyone in awe. A final round of applause to one of the best designers of our generation, may he find solace and peace.
