Passing of a fashion legend.
Alexander McQueen, has taken his life. Reports say that he was found in his flat in London’s Green Park, where he died by hanging himself.
Top fashion designer Alexander McQueen was found dead in his London, England, home Thursday, a spokesman for his company said.
London’s Metropolitan Police said a 40-year-old man was found dead at an address in Green Street, central London.
A statement on behalf of his family said: “Alexander McQueen today announces the tragic news that Lee McQueen, the founder and designer of the Alexander McQueen brand has been found dead at his home. At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated and are sharing a sense of shock and grief with Lee’s family.”
