Long Live McQueen.


Alexander (The Great) McQueen CBE
16 March 1969 – 11 February 2010.

I am actually devastated by the news that Alexander (LEE) McQueen passed away today, aged just 40. It’s an absolute shock.

His death was announced this afternoon, 11 February 2010. McQueen was found dead at his London home and paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene. A statement released by his office on 11 February 2010 – referring to the designer by his given first name, Lee, read: “On behalf of Lee McQueen’s family, Alexander McQueen today announces the tragic news that Lee McQueen, the founder and designer of the Alexander McQueen brand, has been found dead at his home.

McQueen’s death comes days before London Fashion Week, although McQueen was not scheduled to show in the British capital.

On 3 February 2010, he wrote on his Twitter page that his mother had died the day before, adding: “RIP mumxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.” Four days later he wrote that he had had an “awful week” but said “friends have been great“, adding: “now i have to some how pull myself together“.

Fashion has lost a legend today and the fashion world will be a less pretty world for it.

Long live McQueen.

My Wardrobe Favourites: Vivienne Westwood Red Label Skirt.


Red Label Hitched Skirt – £280, purchased from Vivienne Westwood Boutique, Newcastle, June 2008.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label hitched skirt with brown orb side button and signature lining. This is my favourite piece of Viv, but I’ve only worn it once – ever! So if there was a reasonable offer I may be willing to sell, as long as she was to go to a good home:)
