On my way to the airport I was informed of the tragic news of Lee (Alexander) McQueen.

I’m actually shaking while typing this in disbelief.

Only one word sprang to mind…Why?

Why would someone so talented, creative and at the top of his game leave us in this tragic way?

Our thoughts and prays are with his family and those who loved him so dearly.

Statement from the Family of Lee McQueen

“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. At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated and are sharing a sense of shock and grief with Lee’s family.

Lee’s family has asked for privacy in order to come to terms with this terrible news and we hope the media will respect this.”

Apologies in advance for the posts that will follow this one as they will seem so trivial.
