Flashback Friday - Alexander McQeeen & Kate Moss

A truly outrageously talented man.

McQueen killed himself at age 40. I do not understand.

Many people dismiss fashion but this man was no random celeb with a "line" of clothes.

He's work influenced many in the arts, especially music. He designed covers for Bjork, among others.

R.I.P. Mr. McQueen.

Isn't that just a living breathing work of art. Gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

I'm definitely not someone who follows fashion by any stretch of the imagination. But I knew McQueen's work and admired it. I was so shocked to hear this. Prayers to his family and may he find the peace in death he couldn't find in life. So sad.

A great loss to the fashion Industry. early reports state he committed suicide. His mother was just buried about 2 weeks earlier. I wonder if that had something to do with it. I know he was close to his mother. My Cousin, Kelly, is just in shock. She majored in Fashion Merchandising and is very familiar with this fashion Icon...sad.

serendipity - yes...I love the music as as well.

gibber - I was shocked too!

simone - you're welcome.

groommama - also his mentor Isabella Blow committed suicide not long ago and he never really recovered from that. I read that he did leave several notes for friends and family.
