RIP Alexander McQueen

The fashion world suffered a terrible lost today. Alexander McQueen, known for his dramatic and fanciful collections, was found dead today at his London home. I heard the news just minutes ago from my friend Tricia. This tragic news immediately took a huge impact on me and I cannot describe how sad and shocked I am.

McQueen's mother passed away on February 2nd. It had been tough for him ever since his mom's passing. Four days later on his twitter, he posted that "sunday evening been a f*****g awful week but my friends have been great but now i have to some how pull myself together and finish with the HELLS ANGLES & PROLIFIC DEAMONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!". There's speculation that McQueen had committed suicide.

McQueen was scheduled to show his Women's Fall/Winter 2010/11 collection today, however, the event has now been canceled.

RIP Alexander McQueen, we will miss you!

Tragedy. When I first found out, it felt like the world stopped for a few moments. :(
