Alexander McQueen R.I.P

 
I have been listening to LBC today! Fred started me listening to this wonderful TALK station, he loves Steve Alan's show...a bit early for me...as his show is 5am till 7am!!...But if you are up around that time....do please listen...he takes the 'mickey' out of alot of things ;) and really starts your day off with a laugh!


But on a sadder note I have also found out that one of our Iconic British Designers, Alexander McQueen, known as Lee to his friends....has been found dead in his London Home this morning!....It is such a sad day! He was such a fabulous talent...this guy had balls!....he designed from the heart...taking the fashion industry 'often' by storm! His designs were innovative and they were a joy to watch on the catwalks!
What I also loved about him, is that apart from being born in the East End of London...he's design talent showed through, as he excelled through fashion college with flying colours....and that is sooo understandable when you look at the wonderful designs that he created through his life! But he also loved his colours...and designed the iconic Union Jack Bags...which we all loved!
 RIP Alexander McQueen...We will miss you!

  1. My niece who is studying fashion rang me earlier today to tell me the news! So sad that he felt he had to leave this world. Such a shame and a waste of amazing talent. Let's hope he is happier where he is now. x

  8. i am in shock!!!! the news across the pond here is all about our weather, the economy, and american idol. who knew about mr. mcqueen. OMG. i was, still am, such a fan. back when i was in art school, i would watch FASHION FILE every saturday and couldn't wait until the alexander mcqueen runway portion. he was so daring and really an artist. he could dress those models and really make them come alive. his work was cutting edge all the way. i am sad.
