R.I.P The McQueen

I've been reading so many blogs on Alexander McQueen death. All the rumours that are flying around that he had committed suicide really caught my attention. Aside that we all know he had a massive influence on the fashion world, it is pretty sad to hear these stories on the correlations of mental illness, fame, and super talented artists as victims. Take Heath Ledger who died a few years ago. He was like the new 'Johnny Depp', the rising star.

Back to The McQueen death, I can't help but think, "what would Daphne Guinness wear to the fashion weeks front rows and after parties?" For me, McQueen was one of the reasons I wanted to be a fashion designer, I had dreams of coming to his shows and buying his clothes on the first preview. Now the man had died before I could even afford to buy his designs..

  1. He was truly an amazing person. I love his back story too, he worked his way up from practically nothing, no connections in the fashion world just his raw talent and ambition.
