Alexander McQueen - Fashion Design Icon

Greetings Fashion Followers,

As I'm sure you all have heard, Alexander McQueen, fashion design icon, was found dead in his London home yesterday. It appears to be an apparent suicide and what's even sadder is that his mother just passed on Feb. 2nd and according to the associated press, it was reported he was having a hard time dealing with her death.

McQueen is truly going to be missed as his innovative, dramatic designs were highly sought after. Not to mention, he was an impeccable tailor so his clothes were extremely distinctive and of high quality. he designed red carpet frocks and costumes for the likes of Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Lady Gaga, Janet Jackson, and many more. He even received accolades from Queen Elizabeth II for bringing British fashion to the forefront. He will be sorely missed.
Here at Fashion Pad, we wanted to take to time to honor a brilliant and humble designer extraordinaire.
