R.I.P Alexander McQueen

Fashion has lost one of it's brightest sparks in the form of British fashion designer Alexander McQueen who was found dead after committing suicide, aged 40.

His death comes days after his mother Joyce died on Sunday and also before the start of London's Fashion Week. McQueen was due to unveil his new collection at Paris Fashion Week in March.

A source at McQueen’s office this afternoon confirmed his death, saying: "It is a tragic loss. We are not making a comment at this time out of respect for the McQueen family."

McQueen was discovered by Isabella Blow, who was the fashion director at Tatler Magazine. He won the distinction of being named British designer of the year four times between 1996 and 2003. He was named head designer at Givenchy in 1996, succeeding John Galliano, before joining forces with Gucci, who bought 51 per cent of his company.

We at Social Writers send our condolences to McQueen's family and friends at this devastating time.
