RIP: Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen, a fashion designer, was found dead in his home from an apparent suicide.  He was 40.

“Though he apprenticed on Savile Row, Mr. McQueen, thumbed his nose at the conventions of English style by staging lavish runway productions that included clothes made with animal bones and models made to look as if they were patients in a mental ward or participants in a life-sized chess match. Yet he was a tailor of the highest order, making impeccably shaped suits that were also surprisingly commercial.”
