No words can describe how much the fashion world and I myself is devastated by the news of the l'enfant terrible de la mode, Alexander McQueen ending his own life. I read it on my twitter timeline and couldn't believe it until clicking a link to the DailyMail. It's a great loss, there's no such genius as McQueen.
Your brief visit to the world has made an amazing impact and you will always be remembered for your endearingly out of this world creations and how you've made us all inspired. You will be sorely missed;
“People always ask me why I don’t stick around after the show, but stick around for what? I never go to my after-show party. I’ve been a rock kid. I’ve done all that madness. Things change. I know what kind of world I work in, and I find the social and political side of it incredibly stressful. I’m now in a position where I don’t have to play the game, and I choose not to.I visit. I don’t stay.” - Alexander McQueen
