So Sad: RIP Alexander McQueen

Just as NYFW begins, the fashion world loses one of its greats.

Alexander McQueen, one of the most brilliant forces in fashion, committed suicide, and was found in his London home. Recently, both a close friend and his mother had died, so it may have been a matter of a broken heart.

We all mourn you, Alexander, but your creations will live on forever.

    It’s always so sad to see a life lost to suicide.

    I was so shocked to hear about this. He was a genius and will be greatly missed. :(

    I, too, was completely shocked to hear about his death. So sad. :(

    The downside of having a sensitive soul, perhaps? I immediately thought “suicide” when I read of his passing, his recent losses, and his online posts. He sounded so desperate. Remember the song “Vincent” (Starry Starry Night) by Don McLean? “This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you.”

    Very sad when a young person takes their own life.
