RIP Alexander McQueen

I woke this morning to the news that he took his life, age 40.  His designs were works of mystical art but in real life, the tragedy is that the darkness won out.

McQueen was the great genius of his generation in British fashion. He was, like all the most interesting people, a complex and contradictory character. 

The fact that NYFW starts today will be a huge test of compassion for the fashion world.

Remember, if you or a loved one is fighting the "black dog", seek help. You don't have to fight it on your own.

  1. The 'black dog' is an evil beast, and anyone who has one in their life needs to seek help.

    I have almost tamed mine, or at least gotten it to the point where it doesn't balance itself on my shoulders every day.

    McQueen was a visionary, and his clothes were works of art.
